Storyline

A singing group, trying to escape war-torn Sarajevo, has to wait for a tunnel to clear. While they wait, a cow has difficulty giving birth because of the "torsion" affecting its calf (i.e., it's in a twisted position inside). Fortunately, one of the choir members has some veterinary training, and with help from the chorus to drown out the sounds of war, the cow gives birth. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A Slovenian gem!
18 January 2004 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

(A)Torzija (2002), directed by Stefan Arsenijevic, is based on a true story from war-torn Sarejevo.

This 15 minute Slovenian movie is a tiny gem--half dream, half nightmare. It's amazing to me that a film this short can convey so much history, so much fear, and so much joy.

The film obviously hasn't been distributed widely. (We were lucky

to be able to see it at the Dryden Theatre in Rochester, where it

was shown with the Hungarian film Hukkle.)

If (A)Torzija comes to your community, seek it out. You won't be

disappointed!
