good amateur realistc Bosnian movie
This is nothing extreme. Just ordinary romantic realistic movie about typical life of Bosniak's after the war, most of who are refugees. Meaning most of who are living in foreign country, not only because of war and because of job. There is typical lifestyle, exactly as it is, being shown to use, including locations in Sarajevo and behaviors. I don't think there is anything special about sevdah or sevdalinka, but that is just typical sad and romantic song, comparable to English songs like Unfaithful by Rihanna. Of course, I rated this movie better than I would, because it is about my country or city, and because I recognize authenticity of all such locations, behaviors, habits, environment. Looks bit too typical and fake, shallow, forced, but nothing less real than real life is. Reminds me of low quality girls etc. Meaning, reminds me of quantity, some of which is simple negative experience like failed relationships, forced or fake doing or liking something, betrayal, distrust, ignorance... So good presence of makeup, environment, emotions, behaviors...but this is movie only for those interested in lifestyle of, or deeper experience of Bosnia or Sarajevo. Realistic. Bit funny and noticed some common things with other movies. Use of multiple languages per sentence, jokes, strong facial and emotional expression. There is that one of best Bosnian actors Izudin Bajrovic, then there is that Midhat Slatina who I recognize as same character who made actually joke or propaganda about his name Zoran (nickname Zoka) in another funny movie Heroes Don't Die (2019), and there is that bully or criminal Aleksandar Seksan who is also bully or criminal in all other Bosnian movies like It's Hard to Be Nice (2007). Also I recognized friend from elementary school Merima Muminhodzic who acted only for 5 seconds, but that is good start, and it's great. I think this movie will be rated higher by anybody from Bosnia and Sarajevo because they will associate and recognize more things than other people. This is also movie about current problems in Bosnia like refugees and unemployment and moving to another countries, which I strongly resonate with. Topic that is ongoing and famous.
