A Serbian Film, 2010

A Serbian Film, 2010
Director: Srdjan Spasojević
Cast: Srdjan Todorović, Sergej Trifunović, Jelena Gavrilović

Stage: Home theatre

A Serbian Film in short: An aging porn star agrees to participate in an "art film" in order to make a clean break from the business, only to discover that he has been drafted into making a pedophilia and necrophilia themed snuff film.

Preps: heard this is one of the most powerful movies lately, shows the serbian society the way it is nowadays and gives an extra line to all the movies that show something disgustful on screen. Yes, definitely has my attention

The first third is inspiring and filled with an outworn philosophy. What do you do, if you are a professional x.y., after you are done with your career (possibly the question that is bothering most of professional sport-dedicated persons, soldiers, etc). In this case, a worn out porno actor. And where did he got stuck with a beautiful wife like this? This actor, that is in no merit a cute one? Well, those ideas just run through my mind, thanking myself, for being more smart and ending up with a professional occupation, that will last forever, if I want it to. Well, not in this piece, here he has to get some ideas to be feeding his family for some time after he's run out of porn money. And the opportunity walks in, like in the shape of Matrix pills - he takes the blue one and submerges his body to the art director and gets rich, or the red one, where he forgets about everything. Of course he takes the blue one. He's not only yearning for money, he needs that thrill again.

I have narrowed down the main messages I get from this movie, into the ones stated below:

1. Nothing comes for free. Or put another way - a big pile of money always costs you. In some sense, when you sign up an agreement for a huge amount of money, of course you need to expect you will need to work hard for this. In this piece, in a philosophical way or psychological way, even though you aren't aware because being drugged, you have paid enormously for this money. And the price may be, like in this case, something you aren't willing to accept and move on.

2. Don't take sex drugs. A quality anticommercial movie for this statement. I am not a fan of them in any way, but this piece shows disastrous consequence, that drugs might have. TO be under influence so deep that you aren't aware of yourself and you wake up three days later to find out monstrous things you have been doing - beyond my imagination.

3. Sexual fantasies or arrowsement factors come beyond any imagination. For majority of people looking at this, was more pain than most stuff already filmed. In this case, you are faced with brutal, up front deed, that surpasses your imagination (up to now we haven't seen this so indirect on screen). Brilliantly shown, how art people are different and have different measurements or need to use different tools to get the effect they want, that will in normal procedures be shown as a deviation and people like this will be put into jail or being judged by normal standards.

The movie rocks a lot of stones deep inside my soul. When you think what kind of deeds he must have done, you don't imagine that. It's simply hurtful and killing to your feelings.
The ending is brilliant - filming the dead family as they were nothing more than a tool. Because they really weren't. And the price of life in this case is.. unimportant. Sort of reminder of all the wars, once driven on the face of the earth. Where the cost of a life is also nothing to be keeping the earth from moving on.

A very unappropriate movie to be shown in local theatres. Some people might get crazy ideas. But very Tarantino-like. Reveals some of the things you might have thought about (like.. how to make a woman not to bite your d... if you want her to give you a blow job -simple, just tear her teeth out). Anyhow, the tempo just accellerates until its brilliant ending. If you stay in the theatre this long, anyway.

My personal rate: 9,0 (extremely good interpretation, horrific findings what you can do in the abused state and abuse of your loved ones beyond your imagination).
