Grbavica (2006)

***½
Bosnia-Herzegovina

In her account of festering secrets still leaking out nearly a decade after the Bosnian civil war, writer-director Jasmila Zbanic isn't above employing the more schematic weapons of melodrama, but she's skilled at evoking how this now-decade-old trauma maintains an increasingly unacknowledged powerhold over humble, outwardly quiet lives.

wr/dir: Jasmila Zbanic
cast: Mirjana Karanovic, Luna Mijovic, Leon Lucev, Kenan Catic, Jasna Beri, Dejan Acimovic, Bogdan Diklic, Emir Hadzifahisbegovic
