Bravo for Ristovski
29 August 2011 | by marijanacosicSee all my reviews

WHITE LIONS is a metaphor for people who fight for their place in the sun, just as white lions (rare animals) fight for their survival in nature. Film WHITE LIONS by Lazar Ristovski, the great Serbian and international actor is a true refreshment at the film sky because its full of director's free language and excellent acting, first when it comes to Ristovski, and then to other actors. Prediction of the future of civilization in its struggle for wealth , slowly becomes our immediate future. This is a true anti-state film, but also anti-globalization film about anarchy, told through comedy, which is, in a certain way, a feature of Serbian cinematography.

Bravo Mr. Ristovski!!!!!!!!!!
