Not so good
5 January 2016 | by oflogicSee all my reviews

I saw this movie in 2014 Montenegro Film Festival, and I feel that some (user) critic are misleading a movie for what really is.

Montenegro does not have strong cinematographic industry. Every movie that comes out is a small victory for filmmakers, but this was defeat. First part of the movie is very problematic. There is a lack of style in writing. Every narration started with word "They say…", and after repeated 3-4 time it was very unnerve to listen; there was lack of writer's imagination. Ever present background cliché music is trying hard to make a play and atmosphere. There was a lot of problematic scenes without composition, unnecessary post-production lens flare, but the most letdown factors where scenario and acting.

The plot is weak, not so well elaborated story from start. Acting is problematic, but I understand why. Actors from Montenegro don't have experience in movies. They are good, and some great theater actors, but you can't act in the movie like in the theater.

At the end I experienced a movie like a mix of touristic video presentation and some communication commercial. Nikola Vukcevic received Montenegro Film Festival "golden mimosa" for "best director for innovation in film", and that how people pushes domestic cinematography, not knowing that at the same time they are ruin it.
