, 1998, 103 min, color

Kicking off in 1996 Belgade, where the directors previous feature Pretty Village, Pretty Flame left off, this film presents, if anything, a sourer version of recent Serbian history than its predecessor. Tracking back to the beginnings of the Bosnian conflict, it follows the descent of two barely adolescent boys, degraded by fighting, hunger and homelessness into a life of crime, drug-taking and lost idealism.

To emphasise the tragi-farcical, writer/director Dragojevic adopts a rumbustious quasi-Kusturica style of frenetic action, broad acting and ironic musical bombast. Dedicated to the post-Tito generation.
