Original and very well done. Excellent directing, good picture of Serbian reality and position of youth in it. Pretty realistic colors when it comes to the social environment and every day life surroundings of a teenage in Serbia. Tense and original story leads you to the end watching eyes wide open. As a film-making gore I have to point out that this film was obviously made with minimum of resources and pretty ridiculous budget. Yet, it has shown a powerful result that is much more worth of watching than most of the action movies made today, generally speaking. As for few comments read, I have to underline that this film has nothing to do with Trainspoting. The only link is a drug addiction which is more background of the film. I also red a comment on one dimensional profile of the mobsters. Well, I gotta tell you that this is the realistic pattern of the criminal in Serbia. They might have different characters, but they act in the same way. The downside of the movie is bad acting of some minor roles that really irritates sometimes. Everything else deserves high score. 8 out of 10.
