Almost Bizarre Enough
25 April 2004 | by margit153See all my reviews

The film has its moments, as it details the misadventures of a Serbian black market king, his family, and the American navigator who they shot down and captured during the NATO 1999 bombing of Serbia. A great scenario, and plenty of small little absurdities that amuse for a moment or two, but nothing all that impressive or challenging. Near the end, the film takes a sentimental turn, to its detriment. It is most enjoyable when its humor is dark, bizarre, and exaggerated. Also expect the now standard Serb stereotypes: wild, trigger-happy, madmen criminals abound here. Worth a watch -- there are some nice laughs to be had and scenes to be remembered -- but not great praise.
