Film Description

This powerful, Golden Lion-winning feature debut is a beautifully crafted three-part tale, set in London and the Balkans, that contrasts sublime landscape cinematography with the human tragedy of civil war. The first film made in the newly independent Republic of Macedonia, the film crosscuts the stories of an orthodox Christian monk, a British photo agent, and a native Macedonian war photographer, and paints a portrait of simmering ethnic and religious hatred about to reach its boiling point. Made during the strife of the war-torn Balkan states in the nineties, this gripping triptych of love and violence is also a timeless evocation of the loss of pastoral innocence, and remains one of recent cinema's most powerful laments on the futility of war.
