Up jumped the US representative, he's the one with the tired eyes

I know I haven't been posting much lately -- it's been a busy period at work, and with Mrs Ethnia off on a trip, this has given me the heavy but delightful obligation of single-fathering it these past couple of weeks. Expect the pace to pick up over the weekend.

In the meantime, a faithful reader, who is just fine but prefers to remain anonymous, writes in to ask for your recommendations for the most fabulous new Balkan films. Recommend them in the comments!

Here's an obvious one, despite i haven't seen it, everybody who did says it's great: Klopka. Even Hollywood is interested in doing a remake (read: to destroy it).

Another great expectation is Carlston za Ognjenku that should come out this year.

Hmm, i'm recommending one movie i haven't seen and another that's still in post-production... I used to better in this. If i remember anything else i'll let you know.

The user review for Klopka was certainly convincing; it sounds very interesting.

PS: Hope you had fun taking care of the little Ethniatte while Mrs. Ethnic was away. :)

Damn memory cells need help, the show I saw was called 'KlipKlop' not Klopka' and it was good it was very noir. Many abject slavering apologies!!!
Klopka wasn't out until recently and unfortunately I haven't seen it. It looks worth seeing though.
'After the Rain' which is a slightly older film I never got to see looks promising from clips I saw.

I would recommend "Sedam i po" a good little film about Novi Beograd themed around seven sins (and no Brad Pitt-Gwyneth Paltrow in this one).

Oprosti za kung fu (Sorry for kung fu) -- excellent film from Croatia, available on dvd from netflix too!

Grbavica -- another great film, directed by Jasmila Zbanic, i hope it will be widely available soon (not sure where you can pick it up in the US, but if you get a chance to see it, make sure you do!)

I also liked "Kod amidze Idriza" (that's "At uncle Idriz's place", not "The code of uncle Idriz"), really well done small story about ordinary people in post-war Sarajevo, based on a great screenplay, well worth seeing

Hamlet. Watch out for it at a film festival near you.
