A Serbian Film

Director Srdjan Spasojevic’s A Serbian Film is a raunchy and disturbing pornographic metaphor, exhibiting a truly blunt approach with its controversial material. Synopsis as follows (via SXSW):

“Milosh, a retired porn star, leads a normal family life with his wife Maria and six-year old son Petar in tumultuous Serbia, trying to make ends meet. A sudden call from his former colleague Layla will change everything. She introduces Milosh to Vukmir—mysterious, menacing and a politically powerful figure in the pornographic business. A leading role in Vukmir’s new production will provide financial support to Milosh and his family for the rest of their lives. From then on, Milosh is drawn into a maelstrom of unbelievable cruelty and mayhem devised by his employer. In order to escape the living cinematic hell he’s put into, and save his family’s life, Milos will have to sacrifice everything – his pride, his morality, his sanity, and maybe even his own life.”
