Storyline

A day in the life of a family in the countryside near Belgrade during the NATO bombing of Serbia in 1999. Ognjen, maybe 16, horses around with his younger brother, Milan, who's about eight; they leave together, Ognjen to visit a friend and Milan to walk through the woods to buy beer for his parents. Accidents happen: one is in hospital on a respirator, his parents taking the bus to be by his side; the other comes upon an Allied pilot, an American, hanging from his chute in a tree. Armed partisans are in the woods looking for the pilot. Bombs fall: there's collateral damage. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Heart Felt and Obvious
4 June 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This short subject about the effect on war -- or perhaps on non-war -- on the lives of people who have little to do with the decisions, is very well told, with decent performances -- so far as I, can judge since I know no Serbian -- and some beautiful shots -- the final shot of Milan walking through the grass is quite beautiful.

The film is, of course, far too short to make any subtle points and, insofar as responsibility for the entire mess is assessed, is laid completely at the feet of NATO. Quite possibly I am expecting too much depth and insight in a short film, but errors of brevity, when it comes to issues like these, are as dangerous as any other.
