Audience Reviews for Sarajevski Atentat


The old Yugoslav movie directed and written by Fadil Hadzic is revisiting the events which caused the World War I, the events which at that time shook the world. Starring Branko Milicevic, Lucyna Winnicka, Vlajko Sparavalo, Stevan Stukelja, Bert Sotlar, Janez Rohacek, Svetolik Nikacevic and Majda Potokar. I am sorry to say that the copy I watched had such bad editing that I wonder if it was just a practice for some film students never to be taken seriously. I mentioned many times that the sound editing of the movies from the Balkan was atrocious during the 1960's, 70's and the 80's! This one is no exception. [img][/img] There was an attempt to connect the two world wars through the screenplay, but that never felt comfortable. Everything starts when a resistance fighter in WW2 Sarajevo is running from the Gestapo and finds shelter in the home of the old man, and just happens that the old man is a former member of the Mlada Bosna organization and tells the young man about his youth and events that led to assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo by his friend Gavrilo Princip! That's it... that is how story is told. With the exception of the camera work, almost everything else was mediocre, boring, uninspiring, with bad directing and editing, and forgettable acting as well (the German speaking actors were obviously non-native German speakers, and it was annoying listening to the conversations)... completely different from the movie which will be done only 7 years later by Veljko Bulajic, one of the best directors the old Yugoslavia has... I will suggest to simply skip it. If you want to know a little bit more, get the version of the events from the 1975 movie.
