Srdjan 'Zika' Todorovic,
"THE TRAP" is a modern film noir reflecting the true face of Serbian (Eastern European) 'society in transition.' It's a story that could happen to you. It is a film about an ordinary man, who is forced to choose between life and death of his own child. THE TRAP is a film about post-Milosevic Serbia, in which there is no more war, but there is moral and existential desert, about Serbia in transition, in which human life still isn't worth a lot, about normal life which still seems unreachable. Written by
Srdan and Srdjan
While you watching "Klopka", a deep dramatic will tear you up from the inside out and people need that punch that lift them up from their TV-chairs. The appeals of corruption and fast money are polluting the character of an already by war afflicted city and it is not missing much that you just feel the heartbeat of the main character Mladen in you own chest while watching him running against a wall. So many victims are shown in that excellent movie and all of them have the same roots. The comment that presume "this movie you can compare with other American movies" is wrong: there is talking an intensity of burned country through that picture, that you'll never find in an US-movie; will say that there must be a sort of pain engraved in land and country to tell such a story, so of course you better have not to tell such a story!
