Storyline

If we were to choose one man who's got everything going for him, then Lazar Perkov would be an excellent choice. He is young, good-looking, has a beautiful wife, lovely little boy, great house and a good job as a hospital physician. In fact, everyone calls him Lucky. Nothing's missing - except maybe Lucky himself. When Lucky is involved in a disastrous car crash and mysteriously saved from a sure death, his life begins to change as he is confronted by a series of people who appear to die time and again. (written and directed by Milcho Manchevski, with Borce Nacev, Vesna Stanojevska, Vladimir Jacev, Sabina Ajrula - Toronto International Film Festival 2007) Written by Milcho Manchevski

Rich, rich, rich!
16 September 2007 | by WendyKJSee all my reviews

'Shadows' is a confection of images, evoked smells, fascinating faces, pitch-perfect acting, and unnerving events--with perhaps the best crash scene I have ever seen in film. My observation re: the accident might sound like hyperbole, but the psychology of the scene is sheer perfection. Its details are choice. I felt horrified, too, empathizing with all the people in the reaction shots, but at the same time exhilarated because it all looked so damn interesting! (The film has great cutaways!) I love it when a movie takes control of my moods and this has a driver's opening. There is also some great counterpoint with scenes and music. Really, very masterful. This film is better with a second viewing--like watching The Conformist--one always notices new and fascinating details in the frame, in the psyches of its characters.
