Put Lubenica
7 April 2009 | by piramatovciSee all my reviews

The movie is not that bad how this guy above me try to present it. It's obvious that he have no idea how the life after the war (even today) looked in Bosnia/Croatia. New York is far away. Some scenes are really fantastic, and by the way, realistic, maybe not in NY, but in Bosnia they are. I believe that a lot of people know such guys from the movie "in real". The main character is also fantastic, sometimes it's really scary how good he act a PTSP-sick person (unfortunately, i know how it is). Sure, the movie will not win great prices, but it's good enough to bring you to think about the post-war situation in Croatia/Bosnia. Cheers.
