Short Synopsis:

A shocking horror about sex, violence, and the depth of human corruption.

Review:

Milos is a retired porn star who now dedicates his life to his loving wife and young child. He is not happy however, and dreams of a better life for his family. He tries to work but, because of his past, he only gets offered roles in cheap and dull porn movies. One day, unexpectedly, one of his ex co-stars informs him that a new director is looking to cast him in an innovative project. A big pay-cheque is promised, but on the condition that Milos know nothing about the film. Hesitant at first, Milos signs the contract: it will be the beginning of a nightmare journey into sordid sex, violence, and death…

Directed by Srdjan Spasojevic, A Serbian film has sparked huge controversies over its extremely violent scenes and shocking images. The whole movie is an allegory of the pain and desperation experienced by a country destroyed by war and by its own government and which, to this day, still can’t escape from a vicious circle of self-destruction.

Disturbing, twisted and scary, filled with very strong images of explicit sex and violence, this is an extremely well acted film that pushes the boundaries and plays on the lines between reality and nightmare, right and wrong, good and evil, to both horrify and amaze the viewers.
