2 January 2015 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Movie really doesn't have much artistic value, but the truth has to be told and this is it's purpose.

Todays croatian children should know about those braves who fought for their freedom, for independence of Croatia. Serbs policy is still wrong and they do not want to admit to their people, unlike Germans who did realized and told to their people, that they were seduced by their radical comunist leaders who killed croatian civilians; women and kids, attacked croatian cities and villages... An ordinary Serbian citizen is still convinced that they were attacked by croatian rebels who wanted the ethnicaly clean Croatia. I feel sorry for them. I hope there will come a moment when their leaders will officialy admit an appologize to us so that Serbian people know the truth and we start living as a real neighbours...As Martin Luther King said: I have a dream...
