Great film, deals with the post-Balkan conflict themes well!
12 April 2011 | by (Beaconsfield, England) – See all my reviews

Overall I thought this film was outstanding, and both the direction and acting excellent. The themes portrayed are at times cliché and border on frustrating but when trying to highlight the inherited problems the latest generation face with "escaping" from their homeland. The story centres around two couples who both seek a change in their lives and instigate this through a move out of Eastern Europe. Despite the focus of the plot line the film tackles a whole host of themes, but mainly the continued prejudice between Albania and Serbia that has continued despite the end to Enver Hodxa's long lasting dictatorship rule.

The well known Nebojsa Milovanovic portrays Marko superbly well and pulls on his previous experience of Balkan based roles with great effectiveness. Although credit has to go to the full cast who invigorate the script with a sense of urgency and enthusiasm which seems to be common in the recent offerings from other Balkan based cinema.
