Exquisitely photographed by Karpo Godina, this Croatian/Yugoslavian variation on Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom is a portrait of life in Dubrovnik under Italian occupation during World War II. A powerful statement on individual and collective evil, the film inscribes the devastating rift between three friends as they choose very different paths in the fight against fascism.
