a well-made reminder
25 August 2003 | by ivica83See all my reviews

this movie is an important stepping stone in the history of macedonian cinema and it should be viewed as such. some of the scenes may seem strange both to people from the west and to people of the year 2003, but it's understandable as the setting for the movie is set in a time and place, which seem stranger with each passing day. that said, it's still a very well-made reminder that the human will knows no boundaries and no political regimes. 9/10
