It is a very well made movie. Milos, a retired porn star, leads a normal family life trying to make ends meet. Sub-genres come and go, and the recent tide of shocking torture films are more akin to a test of the viewer's resolve, than the slices of entertainment they used to be. This is a deeply troubling film and it left me feeling a great sadness and frustration. I don't get offended by lots of things I see or hear, but it's not enough to say that I am absolutely disgusted with this one. A Serbian Film tells the terrible story of a retired adult film actor named Milos who gets far more than he bargained for when he accepts what he is led to believe is the role of a lifetime.
A good chunk of the film is told in hyper real flashback, and so the audience spends a good amount of time wondering what the heck is going on and fearing the worst. It is the way in which Srdjan Spasojevic tries to cover his dubious tracks by passing it off as some kind of artistic political allegory about life in Serbia. This really reminded me of Stienbeck's 'The Pearl'; just a more sadistic, sexually violent version. But there's more to it.

As a previous review said, there are about 4 scenes that I will never forget in my life. It works a little too well, but it works. It especially works when the film finally makes it's biggest revelation, which is just terrible and deeply heartbreaking, and then the horror doesn't stop there.

Auch wenn sich Milos zur Ruhe gesetzt und nun mit Frau und Kind eine kleine, glückliche Familie hat: so richtig kann der ehemalige Pornodarsteller mit seiner Vergangenheit nicht abschließen.
But sooner he finds that Vukmir and his crew are involved in sick snuff films of pedophilia, necrophilia and torture and there is no way back to him and maybe it is too late to protect his family. It's beautifully made, it's heartbreakingly tragic, it's terribly realistic, and it's one of the most effective and well made films as well as one of the most disturbing. At first I didn't know what to think. Milos, a retired porn star, leads a normal family life trying to make ends meet. He asks what the film is about, but the employer is reluctant to tell.
The big question is, does it work? The alegorical element of the film, offering a none-to-subtle indictment on how the Serbian State treats its citizens was highly effective. It was a difficult film to watch, but after a couple of viewings I was not as disturbed by the graphic nature and gore of it all. But it's a movie, plain and simple. Milos discuss the proposal with Marija and he signs the contract. Da trifft es sich gut, als sich bei ihm Laylah, eine ehemalige Filmpartnerin, meldet und ein durchaus attraktives Angebot unterbreitet.
Fair enough - if you don't like them then don't watch. I like how the film also shows perspective when it comes to what happens. Das etwas wehmütige Betrachten der alten Werke in Kombination mit einer ausgiebigen Freundschaft zu einem gewissen Jack Daniels lassen ihn schon lange nicht mehr so frisch aussehen wie zu seinen besten Zeiten. Aware of his financial problems, Layla introduces Milos to Vukmir - a mysterious, menacing and politically powerful figure in the pornographic business. The amount of sodomy, violence and deviance is unbelievable. The graphic content that the film has become infamous for is not the central focus but a tool thoughtfully implemented to drive story, themes, and character development while making the viewr think they are in the middle of it all right next to the protagonist.
That is why this film is so hard to watch. To me, this movie's more about what you're willing to do or subject yourself to in order to take care of your family, and ultimately the cost of the choices we make. I'm glad that films like this can still be made and I'm glad that filmmakers have the balls to go all the way with their vision. I'm not saying the film was perfect, and I'm certainly not suggesting that it is for everyone, but to dismiss it is a disgusting waste-of-time only serves to criticize ones own lack of effort to see beyond the shock-value veil of the marketing campaign. Though director is known for his appreciation of unconventional film making, I could never imagine that anyone with good mental health would ever direct, produce and star in such a film. He needs the money so that he can leave the troubled country of Serbia and start a new life with his wife and his young son. The film actually took the time to make you care about what happened to Milos, instead of delivering up a total jerk and then reveling in his destruction.
People that are all disturbed by this. The basic story is about a guy called Milos, who is a retired porn star, who in his day was the best actor in the business. Synopsis In Serbia, the retired porn star Milos is married with his beloved wife Marija and they have a little son, Peter, that is their pride and joy.

It has a more classical way of plot development and depicting how it all comes together. It's just too real to be comfortable. .

The thing that bothered me the most about Srpski Film isn't necessarily its use of deliberate shock, and taboo busting scenes designed to offend. It's also one of the most effective films I've seen in years as well as one of the scariest. The gore effects are also unbelievably well made. Milos discuss the proposal with Marija and he signs the contract. The family is facing financial difficulties, but out of the blue, Milos is contacted by the porn actress Lejla that offers him a job opportunity in an art film.
