Surprisingly very good,
This review is from: A Serbian Film  [DVD] (DVD)
With all the hype, and from what others told me, I thought this was gonna be just another movie like Human Centipede.
I was happily surprised. This is actually very well made an in a totally different league. I thought some parts of it were pushing it too far, but I guess that's the point of the film.
For a movie that is so extreme and underground, the acting was actually extremely good. The use of imagery and metaphor was great, and the story line was pretty decent. Don't get fooled by those saying it's really bad. It is really bad, not like the way you'd laugh at a bad B movie, it's definitely A movie standard. It's well written and well shot.
This DVD will probably be cut. I've seen the unedited version with the awful baby scene included. I'm not gonna say don't buy the DVD, but I'm just saying I don't know what has been cut out, but from what I've heard, several parts were cut out. But It's still a very good movie, and the directors and editors are good enough to make it shocking even without some of the graphic content.
I give this movie an 8/10. It's a masterpiece in it's own way, and it would receive a lot more credit if it wasn't for all the un-political correctness. If you can see this as a piece of art, then you can appreciate it. Art isn't just about pretty colours, and people criticise the movie for the stupidest reasons, mainly because it's very dark throughout and there isn't a happy ending.
