Dejan Zecevic – Neprijatelj AKA The Enemy (2011)

Bosnia, 1995, the seventh day of peace: an engineering unit is removing mines from the border between the two sides who, until recently, were at war. Each of the soldiers is burdened with experiences from the front line; each is facing his fears in his own way. Some are prone to self-destruction, some are happy to be alive, others take refuge in prayer… Suddenly, in the ruins of a destroyed factory, they discover a walled-in basement – and in it a man, who quietly sits behind a desk, next to an ashtray filled with cigarette butts, as if he were actually waiting for them. Pandora’s Box is about to be opened… – (MUBI) Read More »

Marin Malesevic – Srce je mudrih u kuci zalosti (2009)

Quote:
“Srce je mudrih u kuci zalosti” aka “The Heart of the Wise Lives in the House of Sorrow”
Official DVD is still not available so I have decided to upload the film to everyone hoe find it interesting. With a budget of 50-60 thousend euros is the most cheapest film in 2009 in Serbia and big part of that budget is used for 35mm film copy. One of the bizarre moment is that the film was entered in Cape Winelands Film Festival in Capetown together with most expensive Serbian film that year “Sveti Georgije Ubiva Azdahu”
Film is very free adaptation of two old testament story, about Jona and Jacob and I have made that film because I was interested to see how that biblical element will adopt in contemporary Serbian society. Read More »
