Confrontation of all kinds is the movie's unifying theme, tying personal to political and private to public in a story energized by the detailed memory and staunch pragmatism of its subject.
This milestone turns out to be mainly a framing device, but inside that frame lies a family portrait rich in political history.
Accessible, informative and wryly humorous, the film uses Srbijanka's tastefully-decorated residence as a prism through which to view the woman, her turbulent times and the complicated history of the former Yugoslavia.
Director Mila Turajlić examines Serbia's political history through the eyes of her activist mother in this engrossing doc.
What shines through in the film is Turajlić's awe of her mum and a question: what made Srbijanka (what makes anyone) stand up and fight?
Mila Turajlic has produced a film which doesn't just chart the history of her country but acts as a rallying call for a new generation to take up the fight.
Serves up a compelling and provocative look at modern Serbia and allows American audiences some insight into a country they may not be that familiar with.
There are plenty of parallels to be drawn between the cultish rise of Slobodan Miloević and the populist movements rising up in Western democracies, but the film is strongest in its many quiet moments.
The best that the history-ignorant can take away from the doc is Milosevic=bad, Srbijanka=good, Mila=needs improvement.
It's a vivid and nuanced portrait of a country too often judged from the outside, still divided by what happened, and conscious of the fact that there can be no easy solutions.
