This movie probably will not be understood by everybody. It either grabs you or has no effect on you at all. I do not know if the story is true or not, but it is portraied in a realistic way that could very well be based on if not one then a few true events and stories. The movie is not about anyone in the film but about people as they trully are - naive, selfish and afraid. It is a remarkable piece of art and I suggest finding the music from the movie as it is touching as the movie itself. The music is done by a band called "Anastazia" from ex-Yugoslavia parts.

Although this movie is currently out of print in VHS in the US, if you go to the DVD section of Amazon and do a search for it you can sign up to be notified should it ever get a DVD issue. Amazon also indicates that it will let the studio know that there are people hoping for a DVD release.

Quite a disturbing film we have here. It is very realistic, in that it shows you how life is in this part of Macedonia with the fighting going on with the Albanians.
The film is divided into 3 parts; 2 parts in Macedonia and 1 part in London. They all come together in the end, to drive home several points related to love, war, family, tradition, etc. The music was excellent, the acting was pretty good for the most part and the translation from Macedonian to English through subtitles was superb from what I could tell (I speak enough Macedonian to get by).
Overall, it's a film worth seeing, also see "No Man's Land", which is similar in content.

I own a vhs copy of this film and if you are considering buying it I would strongly recommend that you do so (even if you haven't seen it yet). I would buy it again if the studio would just release it on dvd.

I can't say anything about this movie that hasn't already been posted in a past review, so I'll just say that it is possible on of the best films ever made. It is so beautifully told and woven together--it's absolutly entralling and I guarantee that you won't be able to pry your eyes from the screen. It's that fascinating. The first time I watched it my mouth was left open and I immediatly watched it again. That should tell you something. Even if you've never seen the movie before, just buy it. Buy it now. You will not be disappointed!
