This movie is loosely based on Nobel prize winner Ivo Andric's short story "Put Alije Djerdjeleza" ("The Voyage of Alija Djerdjelez"). However, many events are added, and the main character is considerably changed: he is not lust-crazed but haunted by the blood spilled in his many military campaigns.

The title means "ghazi", a distinguished Muslim warrior. Indeed, at the beginning we see Alija as a fearless warrior, respected by all. But, just like Shakespeare's Coriolanus, war is his all life, and he is not able to deal with other people. So many hate him, and even he loathes some of his actions.

In the movie you can also see a reconstruction of life in Balkans under the Turks. There are many fine actors in minor roles as well. It is certainly a worthwhile viewing.
