admirable work
27 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

in many senses, more than a masterpiece. because it has the gift to be an inspired introduction to the Serbian Medieval civilization. because it propose a complex and nuanced story about meanings, duty, sacrifice and appearances. because it reminds Andrei Rublev, not only for monastic frame but for the same problems in not different context. maybe, only the answer is different. but its root is the same like in Tarkovsky film. another virtue - the atmosphere. not only the historical accuracy is a great good point but the art to reflect the sources of the perspectives of visions. a forbidden love story. and a monk. a country in reconstruction. and the seal of a period. and something out of words. origin of emotion and reflection and the feeling to be part of other time.
