A Serbian Film is a brilliant movie. The very best film that I saw at SXSW 2010

The most talked about film of 2010 with its controversial blend of stylish and shocking imagery.

Milos, a retired porn star struggles to provide for his family. A call from a former colleague Layla, will change everything. Aware of his financial problems, she introduces Milos to Vukmir - a mysterious and politically powerful figure in the pornographic business. A leading role in Vukmir’s new production will provide financial support to Milos and his family for the rest of their lives. Milos is drawn into a maelstrom of unbeleivable cruelty and mayhem devised by his employer. Vukmir and his cohorts will stop at nothing to complete their vision. In order to escape the living hell he’s put into, and save his family, Milos will have to sacrifice everything - his pride, morality, sanity and maybe even his life.

Forget Irréversible, forsake Martyrs, and spit on Antichrist. A Serbian Film is a horrifying political allegory wrapped up in some of the most perturbing scenes ever caught on cameraRichard Whittaker, Austin Chronicle
A Serbian Film is so much more than the very little “over the top” imagery that it contains
