Storyline

The Paradise Suite is a story about six people finding each other and, sometimes with just one glance, influencing each other's lives irreversibly. For the beautiful young Bulgarian Jenya, her journey to Amsterdam turns out to be the opposite of what she hoped for. Her grueling captivity forces the angelic African, Yaya, to fight for her freedom - a dangerous fight in which he loses everything but his beloved faith. The Serbian war criminal Ivica, who has just become a father, is painfully confronted with the fact that crimes will never go unpunished. Bosnian Seka has nothing left to live for except her vengeance but as it turns out, it's that same vengeance that brings love back in her life. And when the Swedish piano-wonder boy, Lukas, runs away from his new temporary home, his father Stig finally realizes that their mutual passion for music damages their relationship.

Western europe propaganda
18 December 2017 | by mladen-670-257254See all my reviews

Film is typical anti-serbian propaganda. It's not surprising that Dutch is a director. Actually they used real life stories of Albanian human trafficking system and put the serbian character instead. We have seen this done all over the USA and western Europe during 1990's.
