A movie full of clichés
24 December 2009 | by (Albania) – See all my reviews

Despite my expectations on the production and on Paskaljeviç, the movie was deeply disappointing. The dialogs were poor, full of clichés, more than offering art it seemed like the authors were trying to offer a politically correct movie for the foreign festivals. But the "politically correct" mostly turned into false and cliché characters, dialogs, venues, happenings, realities. Than, comes the wedding! 2 weddings, indeed. There seems to be this myth that Balkan weddings are fascinating for foreign audiences. Therefore one every two Balkan movies has a wedding going on. You see people shooting in a wedding happening in the main hotel of Tirana, which is ridiculous, the bride singing opera pieces in a wedding, and followed up by folk songs. By the end of the movie, a Serbian song is sung, which is simply an invention to serve the "politically correct" and to force a plot which does not exist. The way the director used close ups, more than an invention, felt disturbing. There are movies who are fine for the general audience, there are movies who target a finer audience, there are movies made for festival purposes. "Honeymoons" isn't any of those three, sadly.
