CIFF 09, Drama
A former Croatian sniper (Ivan Herceg) enlists a weedy, middle-aged porn stud (Predrag Vusovic) to help him track down one of the latter’s Serbian female costars (Nada Sargin). For motives known only to him (though suspected by her), the sniper ransoms the young woman from her brutal pimp and restores her to the house she lost in the war. What starts out as a gripping, witty, and offbeat noir (2008) declines precipitously in the second half, as subplots proliferate, chronology disintegrates, and the stud’s omniscient narration (larded with Romany aphorisms about women, life, war, etc) gets old. It’s a damned shame writer-director Vinko Bresan couldn’t keep it up for the full 110 minutes. In Serbo-Croatian with subtitles.
