Storyline

Kosovo, 1999. As the civil war between Serbs and Albanians rages, hatred has replaced tolerance, and towns are brutally divided along ethnic lines. The young Serbian widow Danica lives with her two sons Vlado and Danilo in a predominantly Serbian community close to a small town which the River Ibar divides into an Albanian and a Serbian section. The death of Danica's husband at the hands of the Albanians has left profound traces in the family. Little Danilo has not spoken a word since, and Vlado has become a hooky-playing loner who dreams of owning a bright blue bicycle. In order to be able to afford it, he dives into the Ibar every day to catch fish which the kiosk owner buys from him for a few coins. In spite of the war, everyone in the community strives to lead normal lives. But one day, Danica returns from town to find a seriously injured Kosovo-Albanian soldier, Ramiz, in her house. Though aware that he is on the run from the Serbian militia, Danica takes Ramiz in and nurses him ... Written by Michaela Kezele

a war story. and little more
9 May 2015 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

first virtue - the cold delicate poetry of image and story. than - the wise manner to suggest. a war, a community's life, role of the bridge, solitude of a woman, the childhood, the love. result - a gem. not a manifesto, not a masterpiece, not a homage or memento. only a gem about a contemporary event signification, without guilts or pledge for a cause. like every film about the experiences from Yougoslavia of 1999, My Beautiful Country is a form of exorcism. but different for the high level of sensitivity, for simple story, for the special atmosphere, for silences and for the memories. a film about a woman and a man. like many others. about decisions. and theirs traces. about child's impressions about the events. and about hope. so, see it !
