Macedonian boy Zoran and libertation from German and Bulgarian occupation of Skopje
23 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Zoran, an eight-year old Macedonian boy, is the hero of this story. It is through his eyes that we experience all the cruelty of war, poverty, suffering and images of the occupation of Skopje by the Germans in 1942 with the help of their Bulgarian allies. Zoran's father, Dushan is a member of the Partisan forces. His uncle, Gheorgiy, is also a member of the resistance and plays a part in the assassination of a high- ranking German officer, as well as in the evacuation and transport of Jews to free territories.

The Red Army's liberation from German and Bulgarian occupation of what was then a provincial Yugoslav city is the story of the cruelty of war, poverty and suffering in which young Zoran witnesses his Jewish friend Renata Rossman and her family being taken away to a concentration camp but also knows his Uncle Gjorgija (Rade Serbedzija) is a partisan battling the Nazis. However, he fails to save his neighbours and close friends, from deportation. Zoran's little friend Renata Rossman and her family are led away by the Germans to a concentration camp.

The occupation and liberation of what is now Macedonia's capital, Skopje, during World War II is told by actors turned directors Rade Serbedzija and his son Danilo through the eyes of eight-year-old Zoran (David Todosovski).
