Inspired happiness in my soul for a lasting duration. 1/2 months. Like how some people get with ketamine. I was drawn back to this film to watch parts of it over and over, and would sometimes play it in the background on the wire from my laptop to my TV when I was doing something, so I could have a big and small copy playing side by side, any music, just because it is so pretty to have on like a moving painting.
Pastel tonlar ve yollar.. Balkanlar'da yollar güzeldir.. Bosna'nın da ezan sesi, kilise çanı, Drina'sı, havası, suyu, akşamları güzeldir.. Ama ''Nereye gitsen aynı. Aynı kurallar, aynı insanlar..'' Yine de güzel bir yerlere gitmeli, ''Take me somewhere nice!'', çünkü ''İnsanların bir şeyi yapmak için iki sebebi olur. İyi bir sebep ve gerçek bir sebep..''
I expected more from this movie. The story is kinda boring, I was really hoping for the main character to dive in this world with the other lady portraid in it, but instead we just get this boring plot. Even the colors, even being beautiful, they didn't impress me all that much, they could've done a better job at it.
Sidelong, darkly critical look at nationalism in Bosnia from the perspective of an expat young woman. Freedoms she's used to (like travelling safely) don't exist here. So, should its people stay to shape the nation's future - her cousin's traditionalism suggests what that might be like - or leave for somewhere more liberal, as his best friend longs to? A reluctant answer seems to be given in the final sequence.
Well photographed, with a sunniness and color palette that offsets the characters' general moroseness (a bit Greek weird-wave, as another commenter said), but this film would crumple without the performance off Sara Luna Zoric. I also liked Vanilla Ice's outfits and his speech on the fallen post-Soviet man.
This films is shot beautifully, the director definitely knows how to use color and angles. I wish the story was as engaging as the visuals though. As much as I tried, and even after reading the director’s comments about the film, I don’t get the message behind it, and it’s not appealing to me for numerous reason. The character study is interesting, but not enough. It’s a good film, just not my kind of film.
A simple, colored, yet not-so-special coming-of-age road trip film. There are better films than this one, dealing with similar topics. However, it does its job well, giving sincere performances by the main trio, having a colorful yet engaging cinematography, and a good use of its score. Besides that, there is not much to recommend out of this one. A solid watch, but no more than that.
Bonkers! The 3:4 aspect ratio is reminiscent of a Polaroid. A nostalgic tone despite an abundance of iPhones. The pastel colour scheme is both serene and surreal. Danger always seems to lurk around the corner. I'd describe it as an infusion of Wes Anderson and Coen Bros' sensibilities but I wouldn't be doing the film any favours. It's its own beast. Full of life. Sometimes disturbing. Not for everyone, but I'm a fan.
