best short movies i saw in recent years, 22 May 2008
10/10

Very good these short movies. Telling typical stories from Eastern Europe. Nations living in shadow for tens of years, not known to Europe and to the world. Living among Romanians, Serbs and Hungarians, i recognize in these movies typical characteristics, behaviors, customs. Very touching and sensitive stories. Whether of some characters, whether of their nations. I think the Turkey Girl is the best. Not because i live in Romania. :) but it's the deepest and the most complex. I liked also very much the Bulgarian "The Ritual" and also the Serb "Fabulous Vera". I think these three are excellent. The Hungarian "Shortlasting Silence" one is very dark but meaningful and strong, the Estonian theme-movie i didn't quite understand (maybe someone can help me out) and last but not least, the Bosnian "Birthday" is a very well done and sensitive journalistic approach, a "reportage"-type. I love this movie.
