Excellent!
18 December 2013 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

Every film Jasmila Zbanic directed is excellent. This one as well.

It deals with post war Sarajevo. For details about film see other reviews. I will just add that if you are interested in ex Yugoslavia and its history this one is another must see.

Sarajevo today looks best it ever did. For a visitor. The problem is that city is not safe. Petty theft abounds, I myself was robbed and assaulted many times. Non Muslims are not treated well. When I visited American Embassy in Sarajevo last time, they told me that for the USA, Bosnia-Herzegovina is a failed state and except for a short visit they do not recommend foreigners, especially Americans to stay for a longer period of time. Once prosperous communities of Croats, Serbs, Jews almost totally disappeared from Sarajevo. Especially Jews do not exist any more. Are there 200 souls of them left in Sarajevo? It is dubious. But Wahhabite Muslim extremists are on the rise, one of them shot with Kalashnikov on the American Embassy a year ago.

I do not feel free walking streets of Sarajevo.

But still people like Jasmila Zbanic, Danis Tanovic, my father and the similar succeed to live and maintain careers in Sarajevo and are happy living in it. There are still good people in Sarajevo, it is just so hard to find them out.
