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.Written by
In 1996, members of the Yugoslavian Board of the Academy of Film Art and Science (AFUN) voted this film the 7th best Serbian movie in 1947-1995 period See more »
one of the best Yugoslav films!
"Premeditated murder" shows two love stories: one happening during the Second World War, and the other in 1992. The main characters are grandmother and her granddaughter.Both of the stories are sad and romantic... Simply beautiful! This film introduces us with some of the most important events in Yugoslav history. It's sad and funny at the same time, full of energy, humor, and the young actors and actresses made great roles and made themselves shining careers. The director Gorcin Stojanovic, who is in fact theater director, made a great film for all generations!!
