Storyline

Killing Season tells the story of two veterans of the Bosnian War, one American, one Serbian, who clash in the Appalachian Mountain wilderness. FORD is a former American soldier who fought on the front lines in Bosnia. When our story begins, he has retreated to a remote cabin in the woods, trying to escape painful memories of war. The drama begins when KOVAC, a former Serbian soldier, seeks Ford out, hoping to settle an old score. What follows is a cat-and-mouse game in which Ford and Kovac fight their own personal World War III, with battles both physical and psychological. By the end of the film, old wounds are opened, suppressed memories are drawn to the surface and long-hidden secrets about both Ford and Kovac are revealed. Written by producer

oh, really?
1 August 2013 | by (Bucharest, Romania) – See all my reviews

The movie starts with a good old Pentagon-ease lie, in bold letters: "Serbian Army invaded Bosnia". Right, only that was Serbian Army from within Bosnia, which also held a Muslim Army and a Croatian fascist movement, as a documented fact. And Emil Kovac??? A Hungarian name for a Serbian army vet? No Serb will talk neither Serbian nor English with an accent like Travolta's ever. Also, the shape of the beard that Travolta's wearing is usual for the Muslim fundamentalists from all over the world, not for the Christian Orthodox Serbians. What's wrong with you, people?Don't have enough money to get some help from a real historian or familiar of Balkans? Disgusting. The rest is silence(d).
