The entire cast, particularly, Vuk Kostic gave great performances that were both realistic and plausible. Most of the gangsters roles were pretty one dimensional; would have been nice to see other sides of the bullies.
Most of the reviews I had read about the film centre on whether or not it was right/ wrong for Sasa to turn chivalrous vigilante and defend his brother. his seems more in line with the culture in the Balkans where defense of honour and family are more important there than in many other parts of western Europe and the US.
Throughout most of the film I despised Igor for putting his brother through the whole experience and it was only at the end when Igor opens up to Sasa, about his experiences during the war that I begin to feel for him and understand his inability to fight back.
The choice of New Belgrade as the location was great, told a visual story about life in a part of Belgrade and could have been any concrete social housing complex in any European capital.
Definitely a film worth seeing; great acting, great plot and real drama.
