Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on 27 October 2012 by delclem

“A homophobic, middle-aged Serbian gangster ends up sacrificing himself to protect Gay freedom in his country…” The surpise success movie in the Western Balkans this Fall. It promotes nothing less than the Utopian reconcilation of the ex-Yugoslav peoples (or, of their gangsters, at least;) over the protection of Serbian LGBT rights.
