a good one
3 July 2014 | by dragokinSee all my reviews

Skinning is a movie about skinheads in Serbia. Even if you haven't been acquainted with skinhead subculture or Serbia it quickly becomes apparent that the authors took a lot of liberties which, in turn, were necessary to create a feature film interesting to broader audience.

In this sense, Skinning is a work of fiction although it borrows heavily from reality. It tells a bleak story about rough young people. As it usually is the case, soon the politicians and secret service step in to manipulate them. What i particularly liked is that Skinning never became vulgar nor sought undeserved attention by explicit scenes of sex and violence.

Eventually, the actress who caught my attention was Bojana Novakovic. You might also see her deliver an excellent performance in Burning Man (2011) playing next to Matthew Goode.
