Movie Info

In a surreal and arresting sequence at the outset of Milos Radivojevic's Awakening From the Dead, a long-buried professor and writer, Miki (Svetozar Cvetkovic), pushes back the slab from his tomb and climbs out of his grave, his chalky face wracked with grief and melancholia. The film then backtracks several years to 1999, during the NATO bombing of Belgrade and the war between Kosovo and Yugoslavia -- when the writer left his family behind in Belgrade and traveled to his boyhood hometown of Kosovo after a lengthy absence. Amid a long and sometimes painful psychological journey, Miki must revisit old lovers and friends, unearth the skeletons that his family has long kept hidden, and confront the unhealed emotional wounds of his kith and kin. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
