Psychological study in aftermaths of Balkan war
26 October 2009 | by markedasreadSee all my reviews

Debutante Aida Begic opens a tale about Eastern Bosnia in 1997. A sparsely, seemingly deserted village in the aftermaths of the Balkan war. But wait, there are six women, a grandfather (acting imam), a few girls and one boy left alive. Oblivious of the fates of beloved ones, life in the small village continues as usual. At least until one day the two sharp-minded businessmen arrives on a quest to buy land in the war-torn Bosnia, naturally also in the village of pic's assembly. Moral dilemmas including family values and definition of true freedom comes to surface and force the group of women to form divided camps.

Snijeg interposes – by all means – an uncomfortable feeling and pathos for the causalities of war, but also the ones outliving it. Underlying aspects of pic are not beautiful, but it manages to radiate a poetic feeling of how life can go on when it has to. The women of the film are confronted with change, for better or worse. They have lost a lot of things, but what they do have left is their freedom and despite their despair what they need to realize is what they want is all they've got.

All my regards to Aida Begic for portraying this tender subject with such care and modesty, yet managing to include some enigmatic and symbolic scenes which begs for discussion. It's a most successful debut feature that has already earned great reception worldwide – not to say the least by scooping the Critics Week Grand Prize in Cannes.
