A brutal conflict develops between the generations in a lost river landscape. Lack of perspective, adultery and hatred between brothers escalate into deadly violence. The film lives from its impressive atmosphere and the masterfully composed winter scenes from the wide expanses of Vojvodina.
Two brothers, one widowed, the other married, two cousins who growing up like siblings, a young wife who is expecting a child from someone else, but won’t mention his name. And there’s a veterinarian who has never carried out an abortion on humans, a maliciously destroyed fishing net, a shot and someone who goes to prison for it although he didn’t kill anyone. Svetislav Dragomirović takes a calm and slow approach with few protagonists for a family drama in the country, which is his directorial debut at the Belgrade Film Academy. Adopting an unusual narrative style, he creates a gloomy atmosphere of lies, aggression and self-destruction, bigotry and old dependencies where violence is always present. Many years later, the former child is still struggling as a young adult with his guilt. The landscape with its reed banks, forests and farms becomes another protagonist in this impressive genre picture from the north of Serbia. WMH
