Review

In spite of its generic title, A Serbian Film, directed by Srdjan Spasojevic, has already provoked scandal on the festival circuit and fascination from devotees of extreme cinema. At first glance and few are likely to dare a second it belongs in the high-concept shock-horror tradition whose most recent and notorious specimen is probably The Human Centipede. As is often the case with movies like this, A Serbian Film revels in its sheer inventive awfulness and dares the viewer to find a more serious layer of meaning. --A.O. Scott - The New York Times

Srpski Film aka SERBIAN FILM is already on its way to becoming a notorious film. This is something that a little bit of excess here or there graphically can provide with little to no skill. I can t even begin to tell you how many schlocky graphically intense films I've been shown in my life that all Had To Be Seen To Be Believed . There are very few that I can then recommend to you, my audience here at AICN. SERBIAN FILM is a brilliant movie. The very best film that I saw at SXSW 2010. I say that not with a tongue in my cheek, some wicked friendly relationship with the filmmakers... none of that. SERBIAN FILM is so much more than the very little over the top imagery that it contains. --Harry Knowles - Ain't It Cool News

Product Description

The most controversial movie of all time - now, for the first time, 100% UNCUT. A SERBIAN FILM is the story of Milos, a retired porn star who leads a normal family life with his wife Maria and six-year old son Petar in Serbia. A sudden call from his former colleague Layla changes everything. Aware of his financial problems, Layla introduces Milos to Vukmir - a mysterious, and politically powerful figure in the pornographic business. A leading role in Vukmir's production will provide financial support to Milos and his family for life. A contract insists on his absolute unawareness of a script they will shoot. From then on, Milos is drawn into a maelstrom of unbelievable cruelty and mayhem. In order to escape the living cinematic hell he's put into, and save his family's life, Milos must sacrifice everything - his pride, his morality, his sanity, and maybe his own life. This is a limited edition DVD - Serbian with English subtitles.

I recently found out that a new "uncut" version of this sick, twisted, and totally brilliant film had been released. There have been a few "Uncut" versions of this film on DVD and all of those versions have, in fact, been cut heavily... despite the releases being named "A Serbian Film - (Uncut)". But when I saw that the running time on this new version was 104 minutes, I decided to roll the dice and ordered it so that I could finally own a decent copy, and for all intents and purposes, this new version is the best one available so far. Here's what you should know:

1.) The film is uncut. That's the main point.... The official release date on the one I ordered was May of 2012, and THAT'S the one you need to buy if you want the truly uncut version of this disturbing film.

2.) If you do order this new version, the film will satisfy you (provided that you are a fan...), but you WILL be disappointed with the packaging. I didn't read anything about the packaging before I bought it, and was certainly skeptical when the DVD arrived in a slimline CD jewel case, attached to a DVD-sized piece of cardboard.... When I say "DVD-sized", I mean the horizontal and vertical measurements, NOT the width, which is about half the width of a normal DVD case, made from a cut piece of cardboard.... seriously. The picture on Amazon looks like a normal type of cover if you just glance at it from a distance, but the only art to be found in the packaging is a typical plot description, like the backside of a DVD cover. But the plot description is in fact smaller than a DVD cover, and is merely pasted onto one side of the cardboard cutout. The packaging has all the makings of a bootleg, BUT, at this point, I'm happy to finally have an uncut version on official DVD media.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS: IT IS THE CENSORED VERSION October 16, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Send a message to the spineless distributors that we won't accept censored movies. As if anyone who is ok with watching the cut version wouldn't also be ok with watching the uncut version... The ending of the cut version loses all its power. Just find the real version online somewhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Cut. October 25, 2011
Format:DVD
The two most essential scenes are missing from the film. Total runtime is 103 minutes. Deeply disappointed. Not because I'm a sick bastard, but because they've completely undermined the point of the film, and the suffering of Milos and his family. I'm only giving this three stars because of the picture quality (which is quite good).

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible cuts! March 18, 2011
A SERBIAN FILM was my fav horror film of 2010, and as a Faustian thriller it pulls its sadistic and mind blowing depravity off very well. Top marks for the actors and the super effective soundtrack, possibly one of the most seedy industrialised yet amazing music that fits the film so well, and adds a huge amount of atmosphere to complete the films promise of an almost machiavellian plan to use the subject of the ultimate victim.
The director's point of this destruction is to resonate his life in Serbia and i quote "We are raped in birth, we are raped in life and we are raped in death. This is what this movie is about".

BUT the cut version is AWFUL - it loses its point, it loses its atmosphere and it loses the audiences perception of the characters, which is essential to the film. With 4mins and 17secs gone it has a huge impact on the film. It cuts almost every remotely violent scene to the extent where even the music is altered because of the heavy, and brutal editing, ripped apart by the BBFC. Their arguement is that the children used in the film could have been exposed to the actual subject of the film, and any scenes with kids is cut ruthlessly, and one main scene of the death of Milos' ex wife is completely mutilated beyond recognition.
i know that the director was furious about the cuts and i dont blame him. Many films these days often cross lines and as a extreme horror fan A SERBIAN FILM has nothing new, except its context and atmosphere.

So please if you are an extreme horror fan (and anyone else that isnt a fan i would advise to stay away from it), avoid this version and wait till we finally see the release of the uncut. As far as im concerned the cutting of this film is a travisty, and the very fact that they mutilate and hack away at the editing of the film is revoltingly ironic considering the film's context.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Life of a victim" November 27, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A brainy meta-flick containing shocking gore, razor-sharp socio-political symbolism, heart-annihilating family-drama, A+ Production values and at least 4 of the most disturbing, sexually aberrant scenes ever shot, A SERBIAN FILM is exactly what everyone says on BOTH sides of the argument: Depraved and shameful exploitation meets infinitely watchable cult-classic awesome-ness. Love it or hate it, you cannot dispute the overwhelming power and off-the-charts quality control at work.

Most importantly, ASF addresses a question relevant to all fans of extreme-cinema: Why on Earth does any person want to watch another's suffering and obliteration for Entertainment? The lunatic Vukmir is correct that brutal torture and murder sell like crazy in our world. If you're on this product page reading this review, you're likely interested in watching graphic violence and bodily violation from "the comfort of your arm-chair." To feel the thrill of horror with none of the consequences.

A SERBIAN FILM is super-smart sadistic art and, just as the delicious "bread-spread" Vukmir speaks of, perfect beauty derived from filth.

When do we get the UNCUT version on Blu ray?
I have been asking the same forever! I got the NC-17 version on blu-ray, but it's very much cut (only by like 3 min., but 3 VERY vital minutes) to the film! Tarantino hinted at an uncut version blu-ray at several instances, but (I don't know if it's him or just the studio) has not delivered.
