Adopted son Arman (18) has an unstable character and cannot find peace in the struggle for his identity. His parents and younger brother Dado (14), who was born after Arman's adoption, suffer due to his restlessness and the enormous energy he lets out in different ways. He plays truant, he takes drugs, he hijacks a tram, he even falls in love with Milica, a Serb girl from East Sarajevo. Adolescence is difficult for both brothers but it is the younger one who is imperceptibly and increasingly drawn into a vicious circle of addiction, of the wish to prove himself and the need to be as cool as his older brother.

16 August 2019 | by amercucoSee all my reviews

I just saw this movie at the Sarajevo Film Festival opening night and it was bad, it was really bad. There is no plot, acting was horrible, especially from the main character (at times it reminded me of The Room! It was that bad), some of the side roles had 10 times better acting than the lead. Characters lack background or any substance whatsoever, we never learn anything about anyone, they had no emotions or if they had them, it was so exaggerated and out of place that it just didn't look convincing. You just keep asking yourself who are these characters and why are they here. You suddenly get a scene where they introduce a new character and you think, okay something might be happening and the character disappears never to be seen again. Most of the shots are still, camera rarely moves anywhere, there are no closeups or filming from different angles, the shots are so unnecessarily long and dull. Locations keep changing constantly. They use at least three so obviously different appartmens and try to present them as the same place. It's so clearly visible that it's not the same appartment. Some of the scenes look like they were used to fill the empty parts to make te movie long enough. It seems like the idea was to introduce different parts of Sarajevo and Bosnian culture and somehow try to come up with some story that would fill in the gaps between tourist advertisement of Sarajevo. All in all, disappointing. Bosnia has so many good movies and this is not one of them.

After the movie, there was a short speech and someone, I am not sure who, (maybe the host?) made a very funny self-patting comment, she said that the movie was obviously very good because people remained in their seats. Don't skip it, watch it, just to see what a bad movie looks like.
