Trustworthy view on present-day in serbian society
Not long ago, Balkan region has suffered wars and misfortunes. Consequences of that are still recognizable and there are the new problems, of course. There are many movies about that, but this one isn't over the top because it shows current situation in Serbia very good and real. In that sense, another serbian movie "Afterparty" was for me a huge let down.
Every human and every country have its own problems, so let's say - it appears that In Serbia, pure luck is very, very important and usually crucial factor. It often feels like no matter how strong you are, it doesn't really matter without at least some luck, the lack of hope and will may easily be stronger. It is hard to plan anything in Serbia, you don't have many options either. If you have patience and strength, you can plan to wait for luck to hit you. That sounds better than to plan to kill yourself, but is it for Mrs. J, whether her life is worth living... One thing is for sure - "It is better to be a little bit crazy than a little bit clever". "Requiem for Mrs. J" is a little bit of a black comedy, too.
