great, honest story
22 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched it during Sarajevo Film Festival. Didn't have idea about it. Than- surprise- excellent photography, beautiful lines, great performance. Didn't want it to stop. It was touching and honest story where I found myself totally in it. Although I'm not sentimental fool on some places I could see my own family with their eternal silence that is always on a border- trying to fix things for better future. Usually with no solution, no words, or just hard words.. Here you have everything- and you believe in better days!

Finally movie from this region that makes you wanna watch other movies! Congrats!
