Storyline

Filmmaker Hermann Vaske explores the creative Balkan world in the hopes of understanding the meaning of "Balkan spirit", by interviewing philosopher Slavoj Žižek and various artists. However, the term's complexity very quickly becomes apparent and it seems increasingly difficult, if not impossible, to define the Balkans' geographical location, its people and its culture. Indeed, contradiction, chaos and change is at the Balkans very core.

Albanian spirit
11 July 2013 | by (Albania) – See all my reviews

I watched this film yesterday. It begin well. Telling the world, who don't know, who is living today in this peninsula. From Slovenian to Turks, from Greeks to Bulgarians. But for people that live in Europe it was for sure someone missing, or so seemed to be. Yes, the author told about every nation there(except one),spoke with many Serbians, Turkish, some Greeks(one of them said something about whom was missing) and one or two Bulgarians and Romanians. But I didn't understand why did he put the very spirit in black-red boxes. I think there is one of these two reasons: 1- He knows who the real spirit is there (the other peoples just happened to be there) 2- He doesn't know, and he put those colors everywhere by mistake, without knowing that these colors are to the nation that belongs there from the beginning of times (Many, many times before Greeks were born) Now you know that I'm speaking about Albanians. Of course I saw it in the boxes. What I liked more was the passage where the girl with two boxes in hands (red and black) was dancing in mountains an Albanian Highlander dance with an Albanian Highlander melody!
