Interesting story in that the previous reviewer deems everything propaganda
2 February 2012 | by plemenit2008See all my reviews

The story in this film really depicts the main reason and cause of the breakup of the former Yugoslavia. The movie may have it's roots in depicting historic issues between ethnic and religious conflict as "one sided" but it also has historic basis and fact that can be researched and validated. To call it Serbian propaganda is utter rubbish and based on little fact other than media bias that is used by the previous reviewer to his own end. The author of the book (Vuk Draskovic) made a valiant attempt to deal with a very sensitive subject that deals with hatred perpetuated for past wrongs that have never been fully exposed or repatriated. The film tries to keep in tune to the book and its true focus and theme - hidden historic wrongs only come back as retaliations and future food for hatred and mistrust.
