Product Description

Milos, a retired adult film star, leads a normal family life with his wife Maria and six-year old son Petar in tumultuous Serbia, trying to make ends meet. A sudden call from his former colleague Layla will change everything. Aware of his financial problems, Layla introduces Milos to Vukmir - a mysterious, menacing and politically powerful figure in the adult film business. A leading role in Vukmir's production will provide financial support to Milos and his family for the rest of their lives. A contract insists on his absolute unawareness of a script they will shoot. From then on, Milos is drawn into a maelstrom of unbelievable cruelty and mayhem devised by his employer, "the director" of his destiny. Vukmir and his cohorts will stop at nothing to complete his vision. In order to escape the living cinematic hell he's put into, and save his family's life, Milos will have to sacrifice everything - his pride, his morality, his sanity, and maybe even his own life.

Format: Blu-ray
That is how the director Srdjan Spasojevic, describes this film. I really do beg to differ. It is an horrific, cruel polemic on the state of modern life and more accurately Serbia.

He uses pornography and non consensual sex - ie rape, as a vehicle for how low society has become. This is after the horrors visited on his country by two decades of conflict. As others have said this should not have been cut, as censorship is wrong in my opinion, we are able to make our own decisions without the `Nanny State' stepping in to say what is good for us. That said I do not feel that more scenes of apparently gratuitous violence, sexual or otherwise would have helped to ram the message home any more than it needed to be.

The plot is that of a semi retired porn star who gets offered `a life changing' sum to make an unscripted porno for an eccentric `artist'. The catch is that he must do as directed at the drop of a hat, and be able to perform, no matter what the circumstances. Those circumstances become increasingly challenging, but there are hints throughout, of what the `director' is looking for, like when he says "victims sell the most".

I think anyone would be hard pushed to say they `like' this film, but whether or not it has merit as a satire or otherwise will be a very personal choice. I admire film makers for pushing the boundaries, and this certainly does that. It was not a happy viewing experience, but then it was never meant to be, so from that reasoning it is a `good' film. It will just not be to everybody's liking, and if you are unsure there is a very good synopsis on Wikipedia, but it contains plot spoilers. Even having read that, I still was shocked and was left feeling quite down after this I remember thinking it was `belligerently dystopian', when in fact that is what it was saying about society. A film that shocks, makes you think and asks questions - all in all a very good effort, but watch with caution.

Even with the few cuts this film is seriously brutal. Without trying to spoil anything... a scene involving a 'new kind of porn' is made even more chilling by cutting the bad visual prop of what is obviously happening. However, one particular cut to the devastatingly cruel finale is unfortunate. It's still obvious what's happening and to whom, but by cutting the actual 'reveal', the impact isn't quite as soul-shattering. Any other minor cuts to particularly graphic scenes are baffling. Some commonly seen things are edited, while other nastiness is untouched. Anyway, when all is said and done, you can't unwatch a movie.

“There should be a caption attach to this movie” watch with a barf bag, YOU ARE WARNED,
never should I be sane again after this experience, there is no way in hell an American director
can take on a project on this magnitude, the American public will take him out an burn him
to a stake, you can bet your life on that one, and a Re-make you say, or a sequel ha ha.
I wonder what drove this mans mind to direct a movie like this, you have to have lived it, has to be,
does he want to see what’s inside every one of us, are we really capable of this suffering towards
our fellow human-beings, I’ve read a lot of bad things in the news, but do we actually know people,
I have not travelled the globe an stay for extended periods, you know what they say, until live in someone's
shoes, you don’t really know them, how true, “A Serbian Film” will not only shock you, you’ll be aghast
at it’s outcome, other reviews claim there is a couple of minutes cut out of this, I THINK I’VE SEEN ENOUGH,
“Well, That’s It??? See Ya,
Runtime 103 Min.
Widescreen 2.35:1
Serbian 1:1521 Master Audio that's what it said.

I went into this movie knowing absolutely nothing about it, only that it was "so disturbing" and "once you see it you can't take it back!" and all that crap. Of course this only got me more intrigued. As I was watching the film I was totally blown away. Not because it was so disturbing, which I'm not denying that it isn't because it is, but as to how well done the whole film was. The director took some serious risks making this film, I have seen many "gore" films but this seems to top most of them. It's just so well done! And the fact that these things really do go on in the world is what makes it so much more realistic. People are so quick to judge this film and its saddening because this film is done so artistically well. The acting is absolutely fantastic and it has a good story line, its not just dumb torture porn its a true film and I love it! I think the director did an amazing, amazing job and I really hope he comes up with more films in the future because A Serbian Film is great.

The production quality of this film is excellent, better than I thought it would be. This is grime and grit and shadows and sexual horror... not for the timid. There are lots of serious scenes in this movie, some people think it has more meaning, delving into politics, but I don't know. It's just sex-gore and horror to me! I did see the uncensored version of this film a while back, I think this version has only one scene cut that I know of, it's just a few seconds missing, they removed the "face reveal" of the last victim... I won't spoil it!

If you want a "slice of life" horror flick, in the realm of awful reality, and don't mind sex murders, this is for you!
