Future Cult Classic.
17 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't believe nobody wrote a review of this movie. I viewed it on a whim on NetFlix, and it's amazing film-making. This is a unique, one-of-a-kind artifact, an interpretation of the refugee experience. Arielle Javitch is an unsung talent, not for her directorial ability, but for her old-fashioned ability to simply get out of the way and let her people do what they do. This film is beautifully shot, silently operatic, and morally confusing. I fully compare it to STALKER. It's that good/baffling/unique. I suspect the film festival circuit isn't the place for this incredible, confusing gem. It's a dreaming fairy tale/nightmare. It deserves cult status; I'll also, in an odd way, compare it right along with DARK OF THE SUN, as seen from the eyes of Yvette Mimieux. Shot in now-Serbia (I got hooked when I recognized a location, where I had been around in, while fighting 20 years ago), but with dialog in English, a Russian/NYC/ballet dancer director, and a Romanian lead. Don't get me wrong: this movie is not light stuff. It's arbitrary, brutal, scary, and cutting. It may seem depressing to Western audiences. It's not, to me. To me it seems hopeful, an experience of survival. What more can one ask? The film showcases the Serbian landscape (so unearthly beautiful, yet so often, so dangerous)and is a stunning showcase for the leading lady. Film peers? STALKER; BLADE RUNNER; ANDREI RUBLEV; END OF AUGUST AT THE HOTEL OZONE. This sparse movie is that rewarding. It really is. I highly recommend seeing it. It's slow, but I find that, in itself, worthwhile, and it's worth the time. This is good stuff. This is a rare, unique, and special film. I had a terrible, emotional reaction to a line in this movie: "I don't know where I am!" Just... powerful film-making.
