Action/ drama "Serbian Scars" is another contender for 2010 Oscars. Shot in American/Serbian production and directed by Brent Huff this movie stars Vladimir Rajcic, Michael Madsen and Mark Dacascos. The movie was well received by the critics and the audience and at the Los Angeles Premiere last October at the AMC theater Century City so many people showed up that the Fire Marshal Office of L.A. County came to shut the event down and the producers had to turn away over 300 people in order to go on with the event.
The story of "Serbian Scars", set in Belgrade, Chicago and Kosovo, chronicles the complicated relationship and reunion of estranged brothers, Alex and Peter and the forbidden love of a Serbian Soldier (Alex Obilich played by Vladimir Rajcic) and a young Muslim woman (Jana Milic). Alex, believing his father (Goran Obilich played by Steve Agnew) to be at deaths door and in need of a bone marrow transplant, ventures from Serbia to Chicago to find his brother Peter (Mark Dacascos) in an effort to save their dying dad. Peter escaped from Serbia with their mother years ago leaving behind his brother and father to fight in the war. With the help of an American CIA operative, Alex finds his brother in Chicago. What Alex does not realize is that their father is being used as a tool by a terrorist named Dreq (Michael Madsen), who thinks that Peter holds the key to a devastating chemical weapon that their father developed under duress for the Soviets during the Cold War. Goran Obilich is prepared to sacrifice everything to make sure that the chemical weapon will never fall into terrorist hands. Alex convinces his brother to return to Serbia where they discover that Alex's Muslim girlfriend has become a pawn in Dreqs deadly game. Secret alliances are revealed and hidden identities become known as the brothers discover that freedom is never free.

Check out the trailer bellow and the haunting Serbian ballad "Gde ljubav putuje" ("The Voyage of Love") the main song from the movie, above.


  1. I think the other Serbian movie interests me more. This has a more American plot, but seems more thriller/violence based, while St. George seems to really concentrate on life in a Serbian village during WWI.

    This is an American movie about Serbia, I think. But interesting.


  2. Serbian Scars is best made film of the year for me I love the film film is going for the Oscars now and I believe that film is going to be hot spot.

    Acting is great in the film, music perfect etc....great film.

  3. I agree with you Chels.

    I'm glad you like it so much, the only problem with the Oscars is that they are mostly all about marketing and media propaganda, if you have money and big studio behind you it will be easier for you to get noticed among Academy members :(

  4. Dezmond you are 100% right, but that's not right way to pick best film and best actor etc......I saw the film Serbian Scars too and it is very great film but if Academy members are all about propaganda, Oscar is just not good for any indi film maker and people don't need to watch Oscars or Golden Globes.....Good luck to this film!

  5. This action movie looks a little too violent for my taste, but I like Madsen and Dacascos, so I'll probably see it.

    Main song is OK, and that singer reminds me much of her older "colleague" - famous Ceca Velickovic (famous in Serbia). And just like with Ceca, I like the looks of this girl, but don't particularly like her voice, or her style of singing. I would prefer this song with someone other performing it.

    we are also keeping our fingers crossed for this movie :)

    I think you wouldn't like her personality either :) although she has a lot of hit songs, she is known for not being a very intelligent girl :)
