Cirkus Columbia (2010)

Directed by: Danis Tanovic
Country: Bosnia and Herzegovina

Plot: A story set in the former Yugoslavia and centered on a guy who returns to Herzegovina from Germany with plenty of cash and hopes for a good new life.
Quick comment: Danis Tanovic (“No Man’s Land”) returns to the Balkan War stories with this hilarious comedy where family issues were combined with political struggles in old Yugoslavia. A crazy story with a few funny situations, shows solid characters and also works as a strong criticism of a divided country. Actually, there was nothing that we hadn’t seen yet and the story needed a push in some instances, but it flows all right, and I was amused for almost 2 hours.
Relevant awards: Best foreign film (Antalya).
