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.

3.0 out of 5 stars "An Emotional Family Drama" June 26 2011
By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars a few cuts... as if it matters. April 2 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its Shock is cut in Half... Sept. 21 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So I bought this Version Brand new and Expected just the Cut version I saw Online a while ago... But No, It just had to cut out a Certain Image that Completely ruined one of the Final Scenes and the Shock of this Film. At the end at the 'Family Reunion' Scene, they cut the Revealing of Milos' Son. (You know, when they take the bag off his son's head). That just ruined the ending because you aren't totally sure who was the person in the Certain 'Act' of that scene. That Pissed me off. Also, the 'Newborn' Scene was cut quite a bit... (Not that I wanted to See it) But I bought this movie because it's an Extreme Horror and I expect to see that kind of stuff because that's the Kind of movie it is. It's like Cutting out all the Gun-play from a Clint Eastwood Movie. A Good side of this version is that they Kept a certain scene that the other Version I saw Didn't, 'The Bj Suffocation Scene' If you know what I'm talking about, they kept the Whole thing in this version and It's very Extreme.
But still They Ruined the Shock by taking out the Other 2 Parts. The other version I saw was the Violent Cruelty-Cut Version and this One just removes Lots of what has to do with the Children. Don't buy this, you will just be as pissed as me If you have seen the ending before. You are better off buying the Un-cut Version from the US With it's Damn Crappy Jewel Case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Duty! Jan. 18 2013
By DVD/OCD TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I just purchased (and watched) the 'un-censored' version of "A Serbian Film" - had to get it thru US based Amazon.com as the, much talked about, additional 'minute or so' of excised footage is doubtless way more brutal than Canadian sensibilities can handle - so Amazon.ca doesn't list it! Certainly didn't appreciate having to pay the stupidly exortidant $12.95 postage for the US shipping - making this a $40.00 film by the time it arrived in my mailbox - those were some pretty expensive 'minutes' of un-censored action! Was it worth it??!!

I have watched a lot of weird transgressive flix over the years - generally I like them - the 'quality' of that genre of film can certainly be 'all over the map'. "A Serbian Film" has excellent production values, acting, and gore FX and in many ways is not really any more shocking than numerous 'mainstream' gross-out horror works such as the 'Hostel' and "Saw' franchises (despite reviewer's statements like "Makes 'Hostel' seem like a Disney film" etc.) - though it DOES definitely have more overtly sexual elements included... which always seems to 'get people going'. as they say. The 'slickness' of the production decidedly helps to suck one in and as the 'atrocities' presented within the plot gain in momentum and outrageousness there are many 'uncomfortable' moments to be 'enjoyed' (or NOT!) by the viewer until the final scene of nihilistic perversity is played out. I found myself initially sorta 'aghast' in the immediate aftermath of viewing it and went back to look at what other reviewers of the film on Amazon.com had said about it. One of the most interesting 'comments' was the info that the film's director.
