No glorifying of war in this tragic and beautiful film
Lazar Ristovski channels the ideal of a benevolent king majestically.This perspective on the First World War--from the east--is so rarely studied in the west. We all learn that the catalyst for the war was a shot fired in Sarajevo, but pick up the tales in Western Europe. I hope the film leads audiences to regard the more recent genocidal infractions committed by Serbs in the longer the timeline of horrific wars, and given this context minds move from the narrow condemnation of a specific people in a moment in time, to comprehend the wider sin of the problem solving with might.
Kralj Petar I artfully conveys the stupidity and brutality of war.
