Storyline

After the end of the war in Bosnia, Halima, a good-natured peasant woman from a remote Muslim village in Western Bosnia, searches for the remains of her husband and her teenage son, who were taken by Serbian paramilitary forces and executed. Using DNA analysis, the UN Committee for Missing Persons manages to identify the remains of her husband in one of the mass graves, but the Committee still can't identify the remains of her son, since Halima refuses to give a blood sample for DNA testing. There is something that the Committee doesn't know, something that Halima is hiding from others: her beloved son wasn't actually her biological son. The story takes us back two decades ago, during the period of Yugoslavia, where we learn how Halima and her husband became adoptive parents, after fruitless efforts to have a child on their own. Along with that story, we follow Halima's path nowadays while she is searching for the biological mother of her son, the only person who can give a blood ... Written by anonymous

Best Bosnian film so far!
12 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alright, I am a big fan of Yugoslavian films, and after the war Bosnians have made some pretty awesome movies like No man's Land (Oscar rewarded), Gori Vatra, Kod Amidze Idriza, Remake, etc. but this one is the best! Amazing story, very touchy and is not about war at all! One of those movies you just have to see, because if you haven't you are missing a lot!

I just don't know who to pick from actors, but if I had to pick someone it would be Miraj Grbic. He (the guy from Mission Incredible 3)is simply amazing, but other actors are also great. This is the best Bosnian film so far! A true masterpiece!

I am predicting a new Oscar for Bosnians, but this time this movie will leave much greater impact on people than No Man's Land had.
