Movie Info

One fateful act of violence creates a series of tragic ripples in this three-part drama from acclaimed filmmaker Srdan Golubovic (The Trap). The story begins as a Serbian soldier named Marco arrives in his Bosnian hometown on leave from the war. What should have been a happy homecoming turns quickly tragic, however, when Marco attempts to defend a humble Muslim shopkeeper named Haris from three menacing soldiers, and pays the ultimate price for being a hero. A little more than a decade later the war has ended. Marco's father is restoring a run-down church when he is approached by Bogdan, who is desperate to find work. When Marco realizes that Bogdan's father was one of Marco's killers, he faces a difficult dilemma. Concurrently, prominent surgeon Nabobs is presented with a patient in Belgrade who turns out to be one of Marco's killers. An old friend of Marco's, Nabobs wrestles with his conscience after initially refusing to perform a life-saving operation on the man. Later, in Germany, Marco's widow tracks down Haris in Germany, and pleads with him to provide her sanctuary in her most desperate hour. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

An unorthodox morality tale about Serb-on-Serb crime in which concentric narratives make for considerable resonance.

Audience Reviews for Circles

Clever construction leaves the audience puzzling out relationships and trying to piece together an event that seems to have impacted a lot of lives. Particularly effective because we mostly form our opinions of these characters based on who they are 'now' before finding out exactly what happened 'then.'
