With "a poetic, intense opening that recalls ... Tarkovsky," it is the story of Kukumi, Mara and Hasan, three patients "liberated" from a mental institution when the UN arrives, who wander the chaos of postwar Kosovo like lost children looking for a home. Arriving at the village of Hasan's brother, they find a less than enthusiastic welcome but move into an abandoned building and set up housekeeping.
Though what the film has to say about freedom, anarchy, love, hate, brutality, xenophobia and acceptance may be familiar; and though the device of viewing the insanity of war and post-war landscapes through the eyes of the legitimately insane is a long-standing one; the film's language is new and fresh, and seems, like the hapless trio itself, to be attempting to create a new tradition from the rubble.
Described variously as "enigmatic, mournful, darkly comic," and "lyrically surreal," praised for its visual originality, its "disturbingly pessimistic reflection on the meaning of freedom" and its statement via metaphor, the film, bolstered by a terrific musical score, was a prize winner at both the Sarajevo and Venice film festivals. Please join us in welcoming a new tradition - Kosovo cinema.

Two dewey-faced, clever 16 year old boys, Pinki and Kraut, who come of age during the war torn early 1990s in Serbia--a period of moral and material disaster for the nation--look for role models and heroes on the TV talk show 'The Street Pulse' (a real program in Belgrade) where gangsters are treated as rock stars. Soon they become apprentices to one of their local mobsters and master the use of remorseless violence to achieve the power, wealth and fame they crave. The boys quickly and willingly take over their mentor's nihilistic operations yet still maintain their childish antics and a need to prove their toughness. When one boy seriously wounds the other because of a misunderstanding, their unwritten rule means that he will be repaid bullet for bullet.

A man near the end of his life relives a crucial period from his youth in this powerful drama. Lem Nikodinoski (Meto Jovanovski) is a prominent Macedonian politician who has suffered a severe heart attack. As Lem drifts between life and death, his mind wanders to his childhood, and he observes his younger self (played by Saso Kekenovski) during his days in a camp for children whose parents were unwilling to embrace Russia's Stalinist regime following World War II. Ariton (Mitko Apostolovski), the camp's headmaster, is a strong taskmaster, but he displays a genuine compassion for his charges; Olivera (Verica Nedeska), his second in command, takes a more stern approach, and is willing to dole out physical punishment to any child who does not absorb her Stalinist teachings. One day, a new boy enters the camp, Isak (Maja Stankovska), who displays a calm but resilient nature that's different from the fearful attitudes of the other children. After initial resistance, Lem becomes close friends with Isak, and their friendship helps Lem confront the horrors of camp life in a new way.
