Synopsis:
Pretty Village, Pretty Flame is set during the first winter of the Bosnian war in 1992. Based on a true story, it tells the tale of two young boys, Milan and Halil, who are the best of friends during their childhood years and as they grow up, start a vehicle repair business together. As war breaks out, they find themselves divided and fighting each other on opposing sides. Their childhood oath of eternal friendship is broken by the futility of war. Seriously wounded in hospital, Milan lies recalling his childhood and his comrades, who one by one lost their lives in a war where there were no winners. Reliving the war and tortured by his memories, he notices a Muslim soldier in the next ward.
After lights out, Milan crawls out of bed towards the enemy, desperate to complete his mission...

Certainly watchable - Pretty Village, Pretty Flame review by JS

Spoiler Alert
25/02/2018

I had been waiting for this film for a while as I searched for something that related to what was termed "the war in yugoslavia".

A really complex film to watch with 4 time periods used in rapid flash back/forward in the early stages making it difficult to relate eg boy to man.

At times played out as a comedy or was it irony?

Unbalanced perhaps in that the Serbs seemed to dominate the actors and perhaps because of that we never really get under the skin of WHY?

Hard to follow - Pretty Village, Pretty Flame review by RP

Set in different times zones found it difficult to follow and to realise who was who (boy to man etc)

. Probably would have helped if I was au fait with the different ethnic groups involved in the Yugoslav war

Did not watch to the end as I had lost the plot.
