It cost them the loss of nearly 5 minutes of footage to get the (18) certificate - but one of the most talked about horror movies of the year, A Serbian Film will be coming to the UK theatres, riding on an international wave of notoriety (and infamy?) that’s seen it praised, cut, pulled...or just out right banned at many a festival screening. Scripted by Serbian horror film critic Aleksandar Radivojevic, the debut feature from director Srdjan Spasojevic, Serbian follows the twisted tale of an adult film star’s horrifying descent into an almost unimaginable hell. A Serbian Film will open at UK cinemas on 10th December. Even with the cuts, watch out, its going to be narsty.
Synopsis: Milos is a retired porn star leading a normal family life with his wife Maria and six-year old son Petar in tumultuous Serbia, trying to make ends meet. Aware of his problems, Layla, a former co-star, introduces Milos to Vukmir, a mysterious, menacing and politically powerful figure in the porn business who wants Milos to star in his latest project and is willing to pay him a fee that will provide financial support to Milos and his family for the rest of their lives. The only condition is that Milos signs a contract insisting on his absolute unawareness of the scripted scenes they are about to shoot. Encouraged by his wife to accept the job, Milos turns up for the first day of shooting and is immediately drawn into a maelstrom of unbelievable cruelty and mayhem devised by his employer, the ‘director’ of his destiny. It soon becomes apparent that Vukmir and his crew will stop at nothing to complete his insane vision. The only way for Milos to escape the living cinematic hell he’s entered and to save his family life is to sacrifice everything to Vukmir’s art – his pride, his morality, his sanity, and maybe even his own life.
