Srdjan 'Zika' Todorovic,
At the Belgrade army hospital, casualties of Bosnian civil war are treated. In the hospital they remember their youth and the war. Two young boys, Halil, a Muslim, and Milan, a Serb, have grown up together near a deserted tunnel linking the Yugoslav cities of Belgrade and Zagreb. They never dare go inside, as they believe an ogre resides there. Twelve years later, during the Bosnian civil war, Milan, who is trapped in the tunnel with his troop, and Halil, find themselves on opposing sides, fatefully heading toward confrontation.Written by

'Lepa Sela Lepo Gore,' or in English, 'Pretty Villages, Pretty Flames' is one of the most under rated films of our time!
Director Srdjan Dragojevic brings to screen a story of war from Bosnia and Herzegovina. This story, however, is unlike no other! Through a non linear plot line the viewers are told the story of a group of young men and their faiths as the war in the Balkans unfolds. Detail, black humour and confronting imagery are all used to tell this story of courage, friendship and inevitably death, as this is the underlined theme of the movie. For reasons unknown to me, this movie has so far not received the recognition that it deserves but it is deserving of a viewing. The sound track is great too! For those wondering the two main songs are,
'Igra rock and roll cela Jugoslavija' - Elektricni Orgazam
' Bacila je sve niz rijeku' - Indexi / Crvena Jabuka
