Kokan's resentment runs deep -- too deep, unfortunately, for an 82-minute feature to spell out with any clarity.

Filmed in a covert, voyeuristic style, How I Killed a Saint successfully conveys the pervasive anxiety of a country teetering on the brink of civil war.

How I Killed a Saint boasts dynamic performances by the two leads, as well as tight directing (a lot happens in just 82 minutes) and eye-pleasing cinematography.

Though weak in the drama department, the story of a brother and sister who love each other but have different political ideas and personal agendas effectively captures the tension of the time.

The film is light on story, but the gritty, no-nonsense filmmaking keeps things moving, and Mitevska's tale has an undeniably touching cumulative effect.
