I saw this movie at the International Rotterdam Film Festival by surprise. This festival with lots of debuting directors is always a sort of bingo to see brilliant movies or to walk out of a cinema after terrible movie. For this movie I was invited by a friend. I had no expectations at all. To my surprise it turned out to be a wonderful small surprise with brilliant twists and some shocks. Its the first time I saw a Serbian movie. A brilliant surprise. Funny, small acted, with enough drama and a beautiful end shot. The title in English, It's hard to be nice, tells the story about the movie. I hope this movie will find his international way, because it's worth it.
