Na Putu / On the Path



Thursday Night, 3rd day of Made in europe Film Festival I went to see 'Na Putu' On the Path'.

Sarajevo-born director Jasmila Žbanic, winner of the Golden Bear four years ago with her striking debut 'Grbavica', consolidates her reputation as a director of Balkan political themes from a female perspective in 'Na Putu' (On the Path), an involving drama about a young woman whose boyfriend embraces fundamentalist Islam.
The film is driven by strong and subtile acting, notably from Leon Lucev and by Zrinka Cvitešic; whose self-aware, self-determined Luna is a strong, intelligent and sexy characterisation.
I enjoyed the movie and beside that it was nice to see Sarajevo.
The charachter Luna works at Sarajevo Airport, and my family lives on the other side of it, under the mountain Igman.



You can see the film during Made in Europe Film Festival this week.
