One of the best films this year, amazing!
16 February 2008 | by majaderenSee all my reviews

One of the best films this year, amazing! I have just seen it in Berlin, very powerful. Good story, excellent acting, I especially liked the youngest sister's performance. The film made me think, I saw in in the first day of the Berlinale, and still stays with me. The director's vision I found most original, poetic and the story is beautifully told. I believe a new Balkan cinema is on the rise and i expect a lot from the region. This film has shown another side of what we usually expect and see from the Balkans, it does not use the usual clichés and provides the spectator with an amazing experience and a ride to remember. if you have a chance go and see this film!
