Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This is a sensitive, deftly handled Yugoslavian war drama, that aggressively resists using black-and-white stereotypes, and instead offers complex, multilayered characterizations - revealing that there are no purely good or evil individuals. For many years, films concerning the struggle of Tito's partisans in their fights against Oustachis and Chetniks were a staple of Yugoslavian film. In this film, an inexperienced political advisor joins an experienced fighting unit and swiftly comes to understand how to conduct himself in battle.
