Three Windows and a Hanging (2014)


In postwar Kosovo, a teacher decides to tell the press about rapes commited by Serbian soldiers during the war. This starts a stigmatising process that reveals the patriarchal honour structure of her home village.

What I liked

What I liked a little less

Smoking. I'm usually annoyed when they need to force smoking into a movie att all cost. This one is different though, here it actually obviously played an important part in the interaction between the characters (especially the men). It was a central part of the relating and culture and added to the unspoken dynamic mentioned above. Thus, I was OK with it in this film, but so many other films just throw it in with no connection to the plot. Feels like obvious product placement.
