  • Ristovski's debut feature is unremittingly grim and powerful.

    May 25, 2006
  • It is not often that one is confronted with a cinematic social statement so nihilistic and so devoid of hope -- not merely for an individual, but for the whole world around him.

  • Drab, despairing and pointless.

    March 17, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • Marko is clearly a stand-in for an exhausted country, and the symbolism is, at times, oppressively heavy. But Ristovski needs us to feel his nation's torment, and he succeeds.

  • Though its downward trajectory may be obvious, the script is a marvel of clarity, economy and metaphor.

  • It's a grim look at the life of one boy in a country that, at least in Mr. Ristovski's view, seems to have nothing but grimness to offer.
