Storyline

Kosovo: Can You Imagine? is about the Serbs that live in Kosovo and the lack of human rights that they have today, in the 21st century. Most of the Kosovo Serbs have been ethnically cleansed by the Albanians who make up the majority of Kosovo. Kosovo has been under UN administration since 1999 when NATO bombed Serbia for 76 days to halt a crackdown on ethnic Albanian separatism in its province of Kosovo. In the years following the war, thousands of Serbs were expelled from their homes, kidnapped and killed. Their houses, cultural and religious sites were burned and destroyed. Kosovo for the Serbs is what Jerusalem is for the Jewish people. It is the cradle of their statehood, culture and religion. Most of the important Serbian Christian Orthodox monasteries are in Kosovo. Today, Serbs still have a deep spiritual and traditional connection to Kosovo, a land which is being cleansed of everything Serbian. Most of the Kosovo Serbs are internally displaced, some of them live in small ... Written by Boris Malagurski

Very biased film... very weird reviews.
20 March 2012 | by (Dorset, UK) – See all my reviews

I tried watching this film an hour ago and have to say it's probably one of the most biased films I have ever seen. I say "tried" because I didn't bother watching it through... I just left it.

The film portrays the situation in modern-day Kosovo from a Serbian perspective. Granted it talks about a situation which is a reality, with the little Serbs remaining in the country left to deal with abuse on their own whilst being governed by a prime-minister known for its criminal ties, but very conveniently hides facts which led to the end of the former Republic of Jugoslavia.

If you ended up wanting to watch this after having watched the BBC documentary "The Death of Jugoslavia", look elsewhere - there are a lot of good books out there about this topic which are a lot less biased.

That's exactly why I thought the last reviews were strange and why I decided to lookup their authors - who, surprise surprise, wrote nothing else on IMDb. Weird, no?
