Piece of Truth is Here !
23 March 2019 | by bossko77See all my reviews

The film has left a defining impression on the viewers, I would not recommend that the film be watched by the younger ones of the 18th age, and people who are vulnerable to violence. There are a lot of direct scenes of execution.. They were definitely hypersensitive about the content in the film, because it is possible that most of them were witnesses of NATO aggression that year and that their memory's was returned like me as well. The movie as a movie has an interesting story that is also supported by archival footage that was occasionally shot at the end of the movie. As for the acting, it's not too convincing as it is in Hollywood B.blasters, but it's worth of watching.Bad was synchronization of sound in certain characters in the movie. As far as I'm concerned about the pure 10ka for the whole project and the right face of the siptars(Albanian separatist) and NATO at that time without any blinding or exaggeration of the actual events. I hope this film will see the whole world and find out at least a part of the truth about Kosovo!
