Bor, Serbia, once the largest copper mine, now just the biggest hole in Europe. Small union protests are going on. Toda and Stefan are best friends, skaters, who spend their first summer after finishing high school. Stefan’s going to Belgrade to the University in fall. Toda says he wouldn’t apply to the University even if he had the money. They spend time shooting “Jackass-like” videos and hanging out with Dunja, who came back from France for her holidays, and get into a quiet battle for her attention. In that strange relationship of dying friendship and rivalry they try to get ahead of each other. But when small union protest evolves into a huge riot their destructiveness will tie them together.

  1. This movie has no clearly defined narrative, no conclusion, no beginning and no end. It's just a 90-minute tour of a city that's falling apart through the eyes of a group of skateboarders. As their streets, culture, families and means of survival rapidly decay due to exposure to post-Yugoslavian corrupted capitalism and privatization they learn (not) to cope with the seemingly mundane problems of first love, going to college and not knowing what to do with their lives. The movie is made of little symptomatic details and seemingly pointless stunts, woven into a loose- threaded fabric. All against a stunning background of Bor and its surroundings.

    Maybe I am subjective and the movie means so much more to me cause I can identify with the kids. I live in a neighboring country with a neighboring language and neighboring problems, and these kids might as well be my neighbors. It's sad, but that's okay. You get used to it.

  2. The best thing about this movie is that all the actors are real people, from a real city and their personal life stories to tell. Don't expect some complicated plot, its a story about 19y old kids living, driving skateboard and doing nothing meaningful in a former communist planned copper mine city, witch now slowly decays. The cinematography is beautiful, giving the movie a distinct flavor that i liked very much. Acting is excellent and realistic, much better than that of many Serbian 'real' actors, with a big dose of humor as well. Overall its a universal movie about today's youth and their problems growing up that everyone will understand.

  3. it's a great movie about youth. period.

    if you insist in reading further, id say there is a very interesting play with video interfaces and focus on sociotechonological transitions. it's a film about boredom, without being boring, and youth without being coming of age, just passing through their lives and struggles, perhaps a 'fight club' jr. the director managed to grasp in a picture the ethics and surroundings of youth movements, like the skater lifestyle, which is really hard, so congrats for doing it in a not canned and fake style. i think it does show an honest picture of our youth's reality.

    it's full of critics, if you think for a moment you see this. i read in another review someone complaining about the love relationships (spoiler), but the lack of immersing the film in this shows not only a different approach, but also a real difficulty of the youngsters getting into love affairs. also the apathy, self-destruction or sadomasochism, the different perception of crimes and political life, if you want to think about this you can, i believe the movie was edited for this.

    my score: 9 out of 10, 1 point is taken for not displaying more fully the social interactions (not only love affairs, friendships and family are covered, but there could be more depth in the contrasting "life conceptions" and less hit and run), but many were given for being able to show in a realistic way a lifestyle very uncommon for many people, and the beauty of such a lazy, or bum's life

  4. First of all i liked this movie very much,acting is far better then what i got used to see in Serbian production movies in last 5 or even 10 years. Most of our top star actors wouldn't be able to play even themselves with so much ease, unlike these "kids". This movie is definitely not for people who depend on The Rules Of Making A Movie,or the The Rules Of Acting. If you are free living person,without any complexes,i am glad to say you will be very satisfied after seeing this movie.Probably you will wait for something that you can predict,and i am glad to say none of those things in here. But if you like rules….then just wait for green light and pass around this street.
