Storyline

"THE TRAP" is a modern film noir reflecting the true face of Serbian (Eastern European) 'society in transition.' It's a story that could happen to you. It is a film about an ordinary man, who is forced to choose between life and death of his own child. THE TRAP is a film about post-Milosevic Serbia, in which there is no more war, but there is moral and existential desert, about Serbia in transition, in which human life still isn't worth a lot, about normal life which still seems unreachable. Written by Srdan and Srdjan

Intense and painful
11 April 2008 | by LazySodSee all my reviews

A family of three learns that its kid is suffering from a heart problem that is gradually getting worse. The kid will die if he isn't operated on but the operation is expensive and the insurance won't pay for it. How far will the parents go to get the money? As the film starts the three lead characters get introduced - mother, father and not to forget, the kid. At the same time it is shown that the kid is ill and is getting worse and the effect of that on the family is made clear. It's unnecessary to say that there is a level of stress in the relationship as both parents face the fact that they do not have the money to save their kid. And it is this stress and the way it is portrayed that makes this film so strong. As the film rolls on and the effects get worse and worse the portraying of it stays true and all the characters are believable.

As it moves to the point where action is taken it is clear why it is done and also clear where it will end, but this level of predictability isn't bad for it only answers a question that could have been answered even before the film started.

As it moves towards its end it is clear that it will linger on the mind for some time after the ending credits roll by - the effects used are strong like that.
