Very interesting movie... not because of the real message but because of the well wrapped message of the real politics! The dramatic opening is the actual news footage of protests in front of the American embassy in Belgrade and this news footage is intercut with shots of the movie's main character, skinhead Novica, protesting by leading chants and lighting flares in front of the embassy while he's also providing narration. The story than backs up as Novica (Nikola Rakočević), a timid and geeky high school student from Belgrade (with very weird hairstyle) is introduced. It is a sad but extremely violent story and some images could disturb the audience, but that is Balkan... at least you'll have a chance to see how the real life could be - with lots of violence and some scenes for over 18 years old. I will recommend this movie for any parents raising a teenager... especially the ones with talented kids! In this movie you can see that the line between genius and madness is very, very thin. All you need that thin line to be crossed is injustice and wrong crowd offering a "solution" - their right-wing political agenda through racist chanting, violence, and hooliganism is just an image which seems sometimes attractive to young minds! If you want a film that comes out of dark and divides nationalism and false patriotism from violence and anarchy - there is the right choice for you!
