A tragic death provokes a real revolt amongst ... Written by Anonymous

Excellent picture
7 December 2001 | by Harry323-1See all my reviews

Fascinating look behind the headlines of contemporary Belgrade. Character Harvey, played by Daryl Haney, gives frighteningly funny and dark performance as American ex-pat. Surprisingly high production values all around, capped off by tense script and timely subject matter. Recommended
