Featured in the New Directors/New Films series, this droll, soulful comedy-drama tells us that after the smoke clears, life goes on.

This is an engaging, enjoyable film. The acting is utterly convincing and the plot so tight you could bounce things on it.

There have been so many war movies recently. Fuse is a peace movie. It is a film that allows viewers to visualize peace.

Fuse is a clever political drama that shows how difficult it is for a small town to reinvent itself over a seven day period.

Audience Reviews for Gori vatra (Fuse)

Given the atrocities that were committed in the region during the breakup of the former Yugoslavia, and the serious nature of the ethnic hatreds that still exist in the region, a comedy about a town getting ready for a visit from the US president seems a bit out of place. And at times, some of the scenes made this viewer uncomfortable. But maybe humor is just what the situation needs to ease the tensions. At times, it was difficult to keep the players straight, and to understand the relationships between the various villagers, but eventually it all begins to make sense. Mildly entertaining, one sees where it is inevitably going some little while before it gets there, but by that time, the investment has been made and one might as well stick around for the pay off. A few rather chaste sex scenes, and the interaction between the two factions of firemen provided some of the lighter moments, while the story of the father searching for the son who was killed during the fighting lent a certain poignancy to the entire affair.
