Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Croatia-born director Zoran Solomun's second feature, shot in 16mm, follows Yugoslavian refugees to a new life in Germany. This German production is divided into several sections, beginning with the friendship of two young Bosnian women forced from a train at the Serbian-Hungarian border. Jimmy (Dario Suk), a hustler from the opener, provides a link with later segments. Each section is prefaced by a caption showing the passage of time. The original German title translates as "Five Stories From the War." Shown at 1997 film festivals (Toronto, Thessaloniki).
