Jasna is a teenage girl living in the poor suburbs in the south of Belgrade, Serbia. She likes to record everything around her using a mobile phone camera. She is making videos of herself, her school friends, family and Djole - the boy of her dreams. Her family is a mess: father is terminally ill and mother is barely coping. That's why she is spending more and more time hanging out with her school friends, partying and drinking. At one of the parties, she finally starts a conversation with Djole and later they develop an intense sexual relationship. When he realizes that she will do anything to be close to him, Djole starts using her as a sexual object. Jasna starts to experiment with drugs and to skip school. Her life is getting out of control and she needs Djole to accept and reciprocate her affections.Written by
Insight into the world you probably have nothing with
I wanted to write this review after reading some of reviews of other people here. I deeply feel that is not easy to empathize with movie and situation Jasna is and although storyline isn't complicated (it is rather straightforward) the message movie is carrying is still here and it is very loud. Once you can immerse into the lives of girls and boys in the movie and empathize with them message is actually overwhelming. I feel that Maja Milo made one of the best Serbian movies ever (and I watched most of them). Director was able to deeply understand our troubled society and how young people is adapting (or at least trying to) to its surroundings. Isidora gave flawless role and very special touch to the whole movie (I guess that she had good insight in the life of the people at her age). Maja, Isidora, Vukain and all others involved into this movie I wish to congratulate you and just hope that Serbian cinema can find the strength to follow breakthrough this movie made in socially engaged cinema genre in Serbia.
