The Samurai in Autumn is a social melodrama with laughs, tears and heartbreaks and lot of fistfights. It's a story of a karate champion who falls from grace after being caught in a doping scandal. He returns to his birthplace, a small town in Serbia and finds redemption by falling in love with a single mother whose son participates in his karate class. Unable to maintain a lifestyle, he secretly enters the underground fighting circuit and risks losing it all.
The film was shot in Hotel Obrenovac. This hotel was previously used in several films as location, most notably in Maturanti-pazi sta radis, a camp-classic revered by director and writer of Jesen samuraja. See more »
Although I do not like Dimitrije Vojnov, I must admit that he wrote quite decent screenplay, and for director Danilo Beckovic, after Mali Budo, this is a significant jump in a positive direction. If you are familiar with Serbian cinematography in the last few decades, it makes little sense to comment on production that is more or less constantly at the same level, as well as acting because once again we have default cast with their default performances. Is it work of art - it's not, is it masterpiece of cinematography - it's not, is it fun - yes, it is. For me it was pleasant surprise and I really enjoyed it.
