San zimske noci

Serbia. Winter 2004. Lazar returns home after ten long years of absence. He?s a different man today: having regained his liberty, he has decided to free himself from the heavy burden of his past and start a new life in a country also seeming to want a better future. The apartment where he formerly lived is now occupied by Jasna, a single mother who is raising her autistic 12-year-old daughter Jovana. Refugees from Bosnia, they have been squatting in Lazar?s apartment for some time now. Jasna, whose husband has never accepted their daughter?s autism and abandoned them, also wishes to turn the page on a difficult past. Since mother and daughter have nowhere else to go, Lazar doesn?t have the heart to make them leave. Gradually, a special kinship will develop between these three beings marginalized by society...
Belgrade, 1947. Having graduated from the FAMU in Prague, 1976 marked his debut with Cuvar plaze u zimskom periodu (Beach Garden in Winter), winner of the Critics? Prize in Berlin. He has made over 30 documentaries and 13 movies, all winners of awards at the most prestigious festivals in the world, including the Critics? Prize for Best European Film in 1998 (FIPRESCI) for Bure batuta (entitled Cabaret Balkan in the USA). Vreme cuda (Time of Miracles, 1990) won the FIPRESCI Prize at San Sebastian. In 2001, Variety singled him out as one of the best five directors of the year (alongside Lasse Hallström, Neil Jordan, Steven Soderbergh and Edward Yang).
