| Another Masterpiece from the Balkans
I watched Halimin Put last night and I can only congratulate Arsen Ostojić on the magnificent job he did by directing this feature film; as one says in Croatian, svaka čast majstore! I always enjoy watching films from the Balkans because of the actors' fascinating acting. Indeed, they act in such a natural way that we have the feeling to be also part of the film and experience the actors' feelings.

Beyond the tensions and cultural differences that may exist between Christians and Muslims, I really appreciated that Mr. Ostojić dealt with the psychological trauma suffered by people involved (both actively and passively) in a war. We mostly tend to forget that even if a war is over, it actually never ends for those who experienced it as this a hellish moment of life they cannot easily get over. I think the biggest strength of the film lies in the perfect depiction - through the behaviours of the characters - of the psychological ravages each person experiencing war has to cope with once the nightmare ends ; at least this is what made a lasting impression on me.

I am no film critic, but I was eager to submit my review on this title as it has been quite a while now since I last watched a film of such high quality. There is of course still very much to say about the other very interesting aspects of the film, but professional film critics will do it better than I ever will.

Keep up the good work, Mr. Ostojić! :-)
