“Do we still need to keep talking about the war?” is the motto of this documentary by Goran Dević, who decided to conduct confessional interviews with three men who were actively involved in the conflict in former Yugoslavia. These interviews, recorded during car journeys, really bring the fratricidal conflict home to the viewer. Even though all three fought on different sides, they all agree on the inhumanity and absurdity of the war, the fact that politicians bear the blame, and that today everybody behaves as if nothing happened.
