Srdjan 'Zika' Todorovic,
On his way to visit his father, a young Nemanja was caught in a heavy rain, so he decides to seek lodging for the night in nearby motel. The place happens to be notorious as a meeting place of bad, dangerous and weird people.
I bought this DVD through eBay without really knowing what to expect. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised ! This is one of those rare movies that can accomplish being accurate to history (I studied that era) and at the same time entertain you in a way that you don't think your simply watching a documentary.
For those who don't know the era, it's 1914 during WW1, and Serbia is attacked by Austria-Hungary, Germany and Bulgaria. Government and army retreated to the south in the direction of Greece, but were cut off by Bulgarian forces and had to go through Albania and to the Greek island of Corfu. After a series of battles and victories, Serbian forces eventually overcame their adversaries.
The acting is excellent and so is the narrator (Nikolic). On top of that, the director Zdravko Sotra, gives you a feeling of being right there in the trenches.
Highly recommended !
