A SERBIAN FILM opens at UK cinemas from 10th December 2010
“Not since the heyday of the so-called "video nasties" in the early Eighties had a movie exercised the censors in quite such an extreme way.” (The Independent). One of the most talked about films of the year, A SERBIAN FILM comes to the UK riding an international wave of notoriety that has seen it overtly praised by some and yet utterly condemned by others ("sick" - The Sun). Director Srdjan Spasojevic and Producer Nikola Pantelic will be in London to answer their critics on Thursday 25th November for an exclusive public screening of their controversial film and will be available for limited interviews on Friday 26th November.
Scripted by Serbian horror film critic Aleksandar Radivojevic (screenwriter of the award winning ‘Tears For Sale’), the debut feature from director Srdjan Spasojevic is an allegorical, taboo shattering film that “follows French cinema pioneers Gaspar Noe (Irreversible) and Virginie Despentes (Baise-moi) in destroying the status quo regarding on-screen violence and sexuality” (Tim Anderson, BloodyDisgusting.com). A twisted tale of an adult film star’s horrifying descent into an almost unimaginable hell, Radivojevic himself describes the film as “a diary of our molestation by the Serbian government… It’s about the monolithic power of leaders who hypnotize you to do things you don’t want to do.” Confrontational, shocking, uncompromising, with hints of dark humour and absolutely unforgettable, A SERBIAN FILM is “a well crafted, immensely indecent smut-slasher” (Variety) featuring a “remarkable performance by [Srdjan] Todorovic” (Fangoria) and is an affecting and thought provoking work of cinema that ranks alongside the likes of “Requiem For A Dream”, “Videodrome”, “Irreversible” and “Antichrist” as one of the most provocative films of its time.
