No money in selling Chutney
11 January 2009 | by johno-21See all my reviews

I recently saw this at the 2009 Palm Springs International Film Festival. Writer/director Aida Bergic sets this story of survivors of the Bosnian war of the 1990's in a small rural village of present day and the few remaining villagers still there who are trying to eek out a living canning fruit and vegetables and making rugs to sell to anyone who may come here way. Onlt about a dozen or so villagers remain who are mostly women and children except for one old man who is the village elder. An aggressive developer wants to come in and buy their land and they are faced with selling or staying. This a good small film with some wonderful performances and a subdued but powerful script. Lot's of imagery here as this film examines Bosnia's past and the effects of the war that are still reverberating today. I would give this a 7.0 out of 10.
