There is a restless sea in Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina these days. The films Dara from Jasenovac and Quo vadis, Aida? – who is still in the running for the Oscars. Croatia without a headache, did not have an Oscar candidate, and what will it do. Our beautiful appearance is not bothered by anything, its population sleeps more deadly. The man looked at their newspaper and thought, at the very least, that they were Switzerland. The most serious problem, according to the press, are insider reports on the Zagreb days of the newly elected Serbian patriarch. Nothing spicy, of course. But, since it is quite monotonous in Croatia, not to say boring, there are no more even earthquakes, let’s go back to the movies. Although it was expected that the film Dara from Jasenovac would deepen the centuries-old hatred between Serbs and Croats, which may happen in the long run, in the short run the Serbs split into camps, so before you go to war with the Croats, look each other in the eye. Some claim that the film is not authentic enough, that it did not depict HDH’s atrocities against Serbs, others that it is too brutal and careless, others accuse the latter of denying crimes and defending Croats, still others are enthusiastic about the film, and still others say it is the worst – ours finally talked about crimes against Serbs, the sixth drew history, the seventh fiction, the eighth even guessed that it was a feature film, not a documentary, only the ninth said something about the artistic qualities of the film.

The film Dara from Jasenovac is an average, straightforward film in every respect, made primarily for the foreign market, which masterfully manipulates emotions. A state project unworthy of the victims of Jasenovac and the genocidal plan of the Independent State of Croatia. Natasa Ninković, Zlatan Vidović and Igor Đorđević undoubtedly resisted the challenge as actors – they feel, throw up, artistically precisely and complexly. All other border situations were absent in this story. This film is reminiscent of a wall without corners. He resembles a master who built a perfect wall, but he did not know how to build a corner, and he had to build a house. So neither a film nor a documentary. If it is neither a film nor a documentary, it will look like a series, at least according to the director, which will be filmed, and will also include crimes during the Storm. And so day after day, in front of the checkered screen – rata-ta-tira, rata-ta-tira. But look at the miracles, the Serbs also implicated the Bosnian Oscar nominee. The main role in the film Quo vadis, Aida? interpreters Jasna Đuričić, professor of acting at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, and one of the most talented Serbian actresses. The film deals with the genocide in Srebrenica from the point of view of Aida, the translator, the mother, the teacher. I will be free to say that the film is in fact told through the eyes of the main actress – the look, the penetration, the depth, the layering, the splendor in the film without blood, and about the war, disarms. It may be wrong to say that this is a film about war, it is more accurate to say that this is a film about forgiveness, about the catharsis that is necessary, and which is missing in this area, about the eyes above all evil. The historical and fictional plane is not equal, the film has its own dynamics, clear corners and a warm human story that is expertly shaped. I am sad that this film was not a Serbian project, just as Croats should be worried that a film about the Storm was not made in Croatia. It seems to me that all of us lack the courage and artistic talent of one Lordan Zafranović. Until some new Zafranović, we have to keep the figs of Jasna Đuričić, maybe there will be an Oscar.
