The truth is the first victim of war
4 April 2019 | by bspavlovicSee all my reviews

Well made movie, is the first impression. The actors were well chosen for their roles, and they do a very good job. Decent job also from the technical standpoint, that is, decent job for a low budget movie. But there's a lot more to this movie: I don't know what on God's earth possessed the authors of the movie that shatters so many myths and uncovers so many truths, and that is, when the Serbs are concerned, an extremely rare occurrence. I know one thing: it required a lot of courage to make a movie like this. And who knows, maybe 100 years from now someone will tell the true story about bombing of Serbia and Montenegro in 1999...
