Could be one of the best Serbian movies ever.
I've seen this movie at its premiere in my town. It's a movie about two brothers, both talented and interesting in sport shooting. The older one - Igor is an ex world champion, but during the war in 1992 he exchanged his air rifle with a sniper and became a drug addict. His little brother - Sasa is a 19-year-old who can't stand watching his brother being humiliated and tortured by local mafiosos and drug dealers and he himself takes a sniper. The movie is really a story that shows strong emotions, such as love and hate. The emotions strong enough to make a child become a murderer. There were a few things that aren't so true. For example, shooting clubs in Belgrade, Yugoslavia aren't private property, and cannot be sold just like that. Especially the Shooting Club "Milicionar-Krcun", the one Sasa shoots for. Also, Sasa looks like a real champ when he's holding his rifle, but look at him when he's targeting. His rifle is moving enough to miss the whole target. This may sound ridiculous, but in the distance of 10m even a move of half a milimeter means a nine on the target. The 1mm could even be an eight. Off course these things aren't important at all and I'm sure that no one will even notice them. On a scale from 1 to 10, I give this movie a 9.
