Gahhh as a parent I can understand how this would upset you. The ending was horrific. Really upset me for weeks but I suggest you read the interviews. It really does make sense of it when you view it as a metaphor. The guy seems to be more of a human rights' activist rather than just some idiot making a totally confronting film. That's how I viewed it anyway.

Peace Bro.

A Serbian Film has a lot to say, not just about Serbia, but on how the world currently works.  How good people are manipulated to do evil and unthinkable acts by a depraved, powerful elite.

Srđan Todorović (Milos) and Sergej Trifunovic (Vukmir) should have both won oscars, they were brilliant.   :yes:

Honestly I do not care at all if A serbian film (in this case), or any other film has won an Oscar or not, does not change at all how much I enjoyed the movie. But that's me.

I have enjoyed so many films that have never won an Oscar and I hated others that have won many Oscars, which for me .. at this point, does not mean anything that prize.

I still hold the same opinion about ASF and have nothing against the filmmaker for the subjects that were touched upon in terms of art but in terms of personal preference I choose to not watch it any more because of my opinions and feelings towards child pornography. As a father it really sickens me to see it happening whether it be real or simulated.

Yeah, but in my twisted sick world, people would actually be rewarded based on merit.  And A Serbian Film deserves that kind of recognition, because it's a great film.

And Frey, so you are ok with simulated murders, rape, etc and everything else except for what you mentioned?  A bit ridiculous, BECAUSE IT'S ALL FAKE.

Well C'Mon guys. He doesnt like the movie. It's not a personal insult to those of us who do like it. I know a lot of parents of little kids who are absolutely horrified at the thought of it and wont even touch it with a barge pole. Could I watch this if I had managed to have kids? Probably not. The same as I cant watch a movie with animal torture in it because it would upset me too much thinking of my own animals.

We all have different taste and boundaries so dont give him a hard time because he has drawn a line in the sand as to what's acceptable to him. This is a not a film for everyone even though it's a damn fine film.

I accept all valid critique of art.  However, "I hate this because it offends my delicate sensibilities" is not a valid critique.  No one forced you to watch it.  If you want to bash the film, bash it, but at least try and give some kind of intelligent response.  That's all I ask.  :)

Why though? Serious question. Not trying to challenge you just for the sake of it. If he said it should be banned and removed from the public I would disagree vehemently with him because we're all adults and deserve the right to choose what we watch, but he just said the subject matter was not to his preference. I can understand that. He gave the movie a shot and it upset him, and that's more than I can say for people in Aus who agreed with Family First lobby group getting movies banned without even having seen them.

As for me, well I've seen this movie several times but it does leave me feeling quite unwell each time. I think it's brilliant but I respect the fact Frey had a different reaction.

I'm talking context here..  I don't enjoy child porn either, but within the context of the film it is entirely appropriate and I thought people here understood that about art and perhaps it is a good thing that you are offended instead of remaining in your safe comfort zone.  That's it.  As far as boundaries go, they are going to be pushed further and further - art must reflect life, and this is life.

I'm not offended by this film in the context of the porn  and in fact my reactions to the film have nothing to do with the porn. I wouldnt have watched it half a dozen times if I didnt think it was a great film. I was just making the point that Frey is entitled to have his own reaction to it, as we all are.
