Krugovi (Circles) is one of the best Serbian movies of last decade. It is inspired by heroic death of young Serbian soldier Srdjan Aleksic (Marko in movie), who saved life of Muslim during Bosnian civil war and was killed by his comrades. Question which leads movie is: Was it for nothing? Does it mean anything to people? This movie itself is an answer on this question.
Movie depicts people that are 12 years later still in front of this tragedy. Father of victim is rebuilding the church stone by stone. Church is removed due to building a new hydro-power central and he is using the same stone to build it on the top of the hill. Question is: Is it worth? Cinematography here is beautiful. Friend of Marko that didn't do anything to help him is victim of his conscience. Questin is: How to live with it? Fiancé of Marko left Bosnia and Herzegovina and tries to move on, but it is far from easy. Son of one of murderers has to find a way to live with his father's crime and to rebuild the church together with Marko's father. As he is trying to help it seems he is just spoiling. Haris, whose life Marko saved, lives in Germany with wife and two daughters and on the anniversary of Marko's death is in situation to "pay his debt".
At the end all protagonists got answers and we could feel it. We didn't need words to explain situation. As in real life sometimes word are redundant, incapable.
I highly recommend this movie. It is emotional, but never pathetic; ethical, but never moralistic; inspiring, but not pretentious; abounds with symbols, but never confusing.
And one question for the end: When circles will reach us?
