Storyline

A simple story of an ex-convict who comes home after 10 years, only to find two squatters in the form of a woman and her autistic daughter. Though Lazar initially plans to kick out Jasna and Jovana, he changes his mind after seeing the squalid conditions of the shelter they are to move into. It is an allegory of the Balkan wars. When first released in Serbia, it caused some public outrage because of the sharp criticism of Serbia's role in the war.

Tragic stories
20 November 2013 | by marinicakSee all my reviews

I will not talk about the storyline of the film. Generally film has a point in the sense of understanding autism and the difficulties people experience with such children. And this is really showed in the realistic and emotional way. However, the story that follows it is too painful to watch. Rather than that, I will talk about the emotions I felt while watching it. First you have sadness and empathy for people's tragic destinies. Then there is a glimpse of optimism and hope. Sadness is, however, still present. Then you feel disgust and anger and at the end you don't know whether to be depressed or angry because of the fact you have watched this movie. Ending is totally naive and unnecessarily tragic.
