Horrible. Slow, dull and a plot filled with holes. It is probably the dumbest movie I have watched this year. Please do not be like me; watch it and regret wasting 90 min of my life.

My very first Albanian movie...nothing pretencious here although the subject matter about vendettas awkwardly ended with a real event ship sinking of economic refugees which I think the film was dedicated. I was more interested to see what Albania (no longer holds the title of the poorest country of Europe..that went to Moldavia) looks like after decades of Stalinist-like rule by the dictator-for-life, Enver Hoxha. Nothing much of Tirane, the capital, but the countryside shows more promise. If you're just curious about this Balkan country and this centuries-old tradition of family vendettas, you won't be disappointed.
