The cinematic solution to tell the story about 97 year old Yugoslav partisan Sonja Vujanovic is admirable. And her story is amazing and she talks so well, to the beautiful flow of images created by Ivan Markovic, edited superbly by Jelena Maksimovic. I watched and listened to the powerful old lady’s anti-fascist journey from Belgrade to Auschwitz. What a woman. Courage. The director and co-writer, the grandchild Ana Vujanovic, however, want to link the partisan’s story to their own activism of today. For me it becomes a bit “gemacht”, does not catch my interest… get me back to the old lady, I was thinking.

Very good choice – a family film made by the director/cameraman who returns to the village in Turkey, where his siblings want to break away from the strict conservatism performed by the father. Made with love and painful understanding. You often feel embarrassed being with the family – that’s strong.
