Storyline

Adopted son Arman (18) has an unstable character and cannot find peace in the struggle for his identity. His parents and younger brother Dado (14), who was born after Arman's adoption, suffer due to his restlessness and the enormous energy he lets out in different ways. He plays truant, he takes drugs, he hijacks a tram, he even falls in love with Milica, a Serb girl from East Sarajevo. Adolescence is difficult for both brothers but it is the younger one who is imperceptibly and increasingly drawn into a vicious circle of addiction, of the wish to prove himself and the need to be as cool as his older brother.

Excellent portrayal of teen facing stresses of Sarajevo
19 August 2019 | by sarajevo-2See all my reviews

An intense dramatization of an adopted son with strong principles who explodes more and more drastically while facing the challenges of betrayal, bullying, and his own insecurity. The background is Sarajevo 20 years after the war, where the stresses of a fragile society that has never found any kind of real peace intermingle with the normal tensions of being a modern-day teen faced with typical modern-day problems. The son, Arman, feels everything intensely, violently, and keeps almost blowing it completely as he interacts with his parents, grandparents, teachers, brother, mates, girlfiend, and bullies. But he has a tender side too. The acting is all superb, Sarajevo is almost a character in the film, and I was drawn into the movie, feeling like a family member hoping against hope that he wouldn't finally go too far.
