Storyline

Men, women, and war. Jelena Panic is a young woman in Belgrade in the early 1990s, during Serbia's war with Croatia; she's making a book of her grandmother's diaries from the end of World War II. She takes up with Bogden, a young soldier recovering from war wounds. He helps her with her grandmother's story, a tragic triangle involving her effete and well-educated husband and an uneducated major, a Chekist who has, perhaps, the power to save a political prisoner who is the grandmother's friend. As Jelena wonders which man was her grandfather (the Chekist or the husband), Bogden recovers from his wounds and must decide whether to return to the front. Jelena pleads; duty calls.

15 July 2005 | by chemilanSee all my reviews

If someone who never heard nothing about Serbian cinematography ( which is unlikely to happen with Kusturica, Dragojevic and Paskaljevic walking alive) saw 'Ubistvo s predumisljajem' he would probably shout:'What the hell!Is this one an Oscar winner?' This film has it all to be commercial enough and also to be different from all the commercial tendencies. It presented cleverly combined elements: a deeply moving love story within terrible connotations of the Bosnian war which made the love story equally horrible. The thing that preserved this movie from wider international success( although it has collected some relevant awards) is the fact that the same year it was eligible it wasn't selected as the national representative for The Academy Awards, but if it has been selected it would have reached greater accomplishment, thanks to its perfect story. Deeply moving!
