Only Human by Igor Ivanov wins two awards in Lecce!!!

Only Human wins Audience Award and Cineuropa Award at 22nd edition of Festival Del Cinema Europe held 6-13 November in Lecce, Italy.“The film shows six faces, six episodes linked through a dark comic thread. Lost characters met inconsistently in a modern metropolis in the all-round quest for means to survive. The unemployed graduate becomes undertaker, the widow becomes a nun, priests gamble and the gangsters rule the city. Despite the tragedy, the film amuses and gives hope through the eyes of a child, when everything seems to be lost”.

The Frog by Elmir Jukic won The Best film Award at the 8th BaNe film festival in Stockholm. Here is the part of the motivation by the jury: “The Frog” is a master piece of filming and acting. Every frame is meaningful, and every word in the dialogue matters. It goes to the core of the trauma caused by violent conflict in the region. This trauma is present or in the background one way or another in many of the films of the festival. But in The Frog the emotional inner life is portrayed in all its dimensions yet with simplicity of means....

'Requiem for Mrs. J': Film Review | Berlin 2017

A grieving widow resorts to extreme measures in Serbian director Bojan Vuletic's Kafkaesque comedy, a Panorama premiere at the Berlin Film Festival.
A severely depressed widow lives a life of quiet desperation in Requiem for Mrs. J, one of the more pleasantly surprising oddities to premiere at the Berlinale so far. With its fatalistic mood, lethargic pace and washed-out color palette, Serbian writer-director Bojan Vuletic's somber comedy initially feels like the kind of relentlessly grim Eastern Bloc art house misery porn that was once designed to suck all the joy out of serious-minded film festival programs. But there is something much more playful and affirmative going on below the surface here, a stifled scream of defiant humanity against a mercilessly cruel universe.

SBIFF: Day 8 Festival as Melting Pot

Speaking of cinematic voices from other lands, two of the strong films caught in yesterday’s schedule were from “over there” in old and older Europe — the Montenegro/Serbian film The Black Pin and Italy’s fascinating and refreshingly unusual/slightly experimental Indivisible, both well worth seeking out. Writer-director Ivan Marinovic has created a charming, funny, and bittersweet slice of Balkan village life with The Black Pin — so named for a provincial ceremony by which a witch is identified. A woman deemed by some as a witch has died, and the pending funeral, along with a real estate scheme subplot and a salty-tongued priest, keeps the screen buzzing in a contemporary-meets-folkoric way.

Serbian director Nicola Ljuca’s ‘Humidity’ takes Special Jury mention

Cinema Jove’s special jury mention went to Serbian director Nicola Ljuca’s “Humidity” which world premiered at the Berlin’s 2016 Forum.

Movie turns on a successful businessman whose wife disappears, a fact he tries to hide. Why he does so gives the film much of its tension, as it opens up to become a portrait of his family, friends, business and Belgrade politics. Ljuca has described the film as a portrait of a generation which opposed Slobodan Milosevic and seemed poised to change Serbia after his fall in 2000, but instead went into business as capital flowed into Serbia.
