While the film is not as good as the Oscar winner from 2002, it has great pace and dramatic built-up. It is set in a small Herzegovinian town just before the war escalates in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and the change towards the war is splendidly built to a point of culmination at the very end. The acting is pretty good, especially by the excellent Mira Furlan, and the classic Miki Manojlovic. The screenplay is well-paced and very insightful, with good dialogue and interesting plot. Honestly, there is very little to nothing 'wrong' with the film. It is a strong film, and it is to no surprise that it was the Bosnian selection for the Academy Awards in 2010. I'd definitely recommend it, if for nothing else, for providing a beautiful view into the dramatic psychological and socio-political changes that were going on in the former Yugoslavia with lightning speed.
