Movie Info

It has been years since the war ended. A young deputy prosecutor, Dusan, handling the investigation of war crimes, is assigned to investigate the formation of a paramilitary group. Quickly he comes to learn that this is a branch of the "First Pioneer's", a group which was operating on the battlefields in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo, after which they disappeared without a trace. Dusan is determined to bring the case to a positive resolution in order to show his father, a famous retired law professor and to his boss, a senior war crimes prosecutor, that he is capable of the job. For Dusan, this becomes much more than a simple case; it becomes a matter of personal confrontation and conviction. No one expects the investigation will come too much and Dusan's associates feel he's destined to fail, until Dusan finds the unit's only surviving soldier, Micun, who is hiding from his past and trying to live peacefully and quietly. The encounter of Dusan and Micun changes their lives in unpredictable ways and directly affects their families and futures.

    This latest Serbian political thriller was a real refreshing event. The director Miroslav Terzic managed to effectively use just intriguing enough screenplay co-written by Ðorde Milosavljevic and Nikola Pejakovic (with input from journalist Filip Svarm). The story of Dusan Ilic (Gordan Kicic) who is employed at the Serbian state prosecutor's office, and gets a top secret case to investigate a war crime committed by a disbanded paramilitary unit was developing slowly with a pace perfect for an effective thriller. Maybe the way he manages to find Micun (superbly acted by Uliks Fehmiu) - who's the only surviving witness, had few "holes" in the story whose arbitrary coincidences undermine the story's believability. I could say that the screenplay was the "weakest link" and even the polished look and atmosphere couldn't cover some of the flows.

Of course, the problem with such approach of the director is that Serbian film theatre audiences have been conditioned into rejecting ambitious, well-crafted cinematic projects if they don't pander or resort to sensationalism... My thoughts are - it will be their loss! I don't think that you'll see it in a cinema but the DVD is already available... check it out.
