Jawdroping, A Serbian Film is a real piece of transgressive cinema. At the begining the film shows a few desnecessary scenes. Spasojevic's skoching work… More

If you like amateur, forced spike-table birth, then bloody baby rape, followed by a glass of dazzling White Zinfadel, you will love Serbia!
