Movie Info

Srdjan Dragojevic directed this Serbian-French drama about life in war-torn Belgrade, as narrated by teen Pinki (Dusan Pekic). In 1996, a stoned Pinki and his pal Kraut (Milan Maric) speed through Belgrade streets as the city celebrates the war's conclusion. A flashback travels to the year 1991 when Pinki and Kraut are into petty crimes, masturbation, and girls. They admire Dickie (Dragan Bjelogrlic), who shows them easy cash and sleek cars. Dickie has his girlfriend Suki (Branka Katic) do a sex demo for the teens. Many local toughs turn up on TV's Street Pulse, hosted by sexy Lidija, and the duo angles for an invite to the show. In 1993, drugs bring on a darker side, evident in full force by 1995. Shown at the 1998 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Rane (The Wounds)

½

[font=Times New Roman][size=3]Let me preface my comments by saying that the film is an EXCELLENT one, very realistic and believable. The actors were well chosen, the make-up and staging are flawless. The translations are satisfactory. The movie really has a soul of its own. Dusan Pekic is excellent?words fail to describe the quality of his performance.[/size][/font]

[font=Times New Roman][size=3] [/size][/font]

[font=Times New Roman][size=3]But I was shocked by it. There is a LOT of sex, nudity (including male frontal), drug usage, and violence. Much of it is artistic in nature, and therefore forgivable. However, all of this makes it so that I can?t enjoy the movie. It just makes me feel bad.[/size][/font]

[font=Times New Roman][size=3] [/size][/font]

[font=Times New Roman][size=3]I can recommend the film to people who are familiar with post-war Serbia, or at least have some vested interest in the Yugoslav conflict in the early nineties. Knowledge of the Serbian language is very helpful, as something always lost in translation. For the casual American (or world, for that matter) viewer, the film would simply not mean as much.[/size][/font]

[font=Times New Roman][size=3] [/size][/font]

[size=3][font=Times New Roman]So, for the world audience, I would have to recommend something else (?No Man?s Land,? for instance)?this movie really isn?t for you?it might give you a bad idea that Serbian films are all dark and illicit. For those of you familiar with Serbia and/or Serbian cinematography, this is a must.[/font][/size]

An ugly movie about two kids who live in Serbia and get into a world of crime. It is like a poor-mans Tarantino film.
