A Promising Story Lost in a Messy Screenplay
31 October 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Marseille, the young Serbian-Albanian Adria Shala (Rie Rasmussen) is an illegal immigrant traumatized by her past. Every now and then Adria recalls his life in Kosovo, when she was saved from rape by the deserter Srdjan Vasiljevic (Nikola Djuricko) in 1999. They move to Belgrade where Srdjan becomes a gangster, dealing weapons and assassinating persons. Adria learns how to shoot and helps Srdjan in his jobs first and then she becomes his mistress. When Adria meets the American drifter Shawn Reagan (Nick Corey) and she falls in love with him. But sooner she is haunted by her past and is betrayed.

"Human Zoo" is a promising story of war, violence, prejudice, love and betrayal supported by excellent performances but lost in a messy screenplay. The director, writer and lead actress Rie Rasmussen is stunning in the role of Adria, but unfortunately the screenplay is very confused and in the end I am not sure whether Srdjan or Shawn has betrayed her or she was arrested simply because of the slaughter in the house of tanning and prostitution. The sex scenes are very graphic and the violence is well choreographed and realistic. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Human Zoo"
