Mediocrity...
26 June 2012 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

So first the plot: it's about a man who comes back to Yugoslavia after the Communists are down (he ran because of the commies so now he can come back), that man brings with him his trophy new wife and through the movie tries to show that he's the most important man in town (This story of the man showing off might have worked if it was done to the end, but it seems that the director couldn't decide and left it somewhere in the middle). And meanwhile his son and wife starting to get very close. This part is done well I think but resembles too many other books/movies that talk about similar issues (like "Lolita" & "27 Missing Kisses")

Frankly this movie is nice but without anything to say. Maybe as a first movie for a director it's a triumph but for the intelligent viewer it's just another movie that will be forgotten & never remembered.

Another disappointing point is that the movie could have done much more about explaining and showing how the Yugoslavian civil war started but again the director simplifies it (to a fight between two kids over a girl, like really?....)
