A decent movie considering the fact that it comes from Croatia.
10 June 2009 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Metastaze is a well made movie.I am from Split,Croatia and since our cinematography isn't very good in the last twenty year's i can honestly say that this is one of the better movies coming from Croatia since 90's.Not the best,but still among the better ones.I'm not saying that it couldn't be better because it could be a lot better,but what i'm saying is that it's a decent movie to see.

I was very surprised by Rene Bitorajac who gave his best performance,so far,in this film.The screenplay was OK but nothing more.It had a few minor holes and it was very simple.Well,maybe not in Croatian cinematography.The direction was good except that shaky camera technique was a bit overused.

Too short the story,it's a good movie with a few flaws that can be overlooked if you consider that Croatia had maybe twenty good movies the most,in the last twenty year's.
