Quo Vadis Aida?

Quo Vadis Aida? ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Director: Jasmila Zbanic Cast: Jasna DjuricicIzudin BajrovicBoris Ler 

A profoundly tense and moving film that follows Aida, a translator working at a UN base during the Srebrenica massacre of 1995 in which more than 8372 Bosnian (mainly men and young boys) were murdered by the Serbian troups. The film has just been nominated for and Oscar for best Foreign film and it really deserves your attention. Not just because it’s beautifully made, but because nobody should ever forget this. Director Jasmila Zbanic doesn’t shy away from the injustice and horror of what happened, but at the same time she doesn’t revel in it, chasing to stay away at the worst possible moments. Not a single person is seen being killed on screen.Watching the film tonight was a draining, infuriating and rather devastating experienceIt is a testament to the horror of war and the human toll that war has. The central performance Jasna Đuričić is astonishing. In one of the final scenes when years later she breaks down at the sight of the remains of her children floored me completely… I’m still shaking as I am writing this.

It’s unfathomable to grasp that something like this has actually happened only a couple of decades ago.

This is certainly one of the most powerful films I’ve seen in a long time.
