27 April 2018 - 19:30
An apparent surprise of Slovenian cinema, with one of the victims of the Bosnian war in the center of the drama, which is apparently refugee, But in fact because of family history (Alia has lost her sister in the Bosnian war) and his job (a miner who is searching for mineral resources but he exhumes and reveals the crime of criminals) Part of the catastrophe of corrupt police and judicial system in absolute silence and ignorance of new generation (which also spies their colleagues for their masters and they are happy that these things don’t happen in their country. He makes public in the media and pays for it. The film also dialectically deals with the historical relationship of crime and secrecy And focusing on the life of Alia as a proletarian who has always give up to any injustice because of avoiding engagement in an unequal battle with capitalist masters and fear of becoming unemployed and expelled from the country. The most important event of his life makes him a universal. The film, despite its desperate tone in displaying the domination and mastery of power in hiding the crime, it is not disappointing. When Alia at the end of the movie buries the signs left from crime under the tree he shows his moral commitment implicitly as a person (bringing the crime signs from the ground to the surface) and it will make it easier for future generations to access to true historical signs. Although scary monsters are always everywhere and on the contrary to Samir, by looking at them they are not destroyed like zombie movies. But the two parts of conflict with the police and a stranger’s respect to Alia for his disclosure shows that the monsters are not impervious to those who do not bend over.
