Excellent naturalistic movie
16 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wont bother with a plot review, just to say the acting, directing and photography was excellent. Unlike most American films, it unfolds slowly, but we were rewarded with rich subplots and building tension as the Balkan war advances rapidly, and our characters' lives are forced to confront their past and make choices about the new reality. I especially found Mira Furlan's acting very compelling.

The plot was able to handle several subjects well: politics, greed, corruption, and class; plus the tensions of split families, troubled couples, and new love. Above all, while the story takes place in one town with divergent and quirky characters, they were believable.
