4.0 out of 5 stars Inspired Film-making, July 29, 2013
This review is from: Clip (Klip) (DVD)
"Klip" (aka "Clip") probably will not appeal to a wide-ranging audience, and there are several potential reasons for that...
It is made in a documentary style, and may be considered somewhat boring because it essentially just depicts a few weeks in the life of a Serbian teenage girl. Also, it is in Serbian language with English subtitles; and many people don't enjoy having to 'read' movies. Plus, it may offend some viewers with it's hard-hitting depictions of teenage drinking, drug use, and sexual promiscuity.
However, beyond those potential limitations, "Klip" is actually a competently made and well acted movie. And the kind of movie which is capable of leaving the viewer pondering what they have seen, long after the end credits have finished rolling.

"Klip" gives us a brief glimpse into the life of Jasna. She is a 14-year-old girl, living in a decayed Serbia. She has a dysfunctional relationship with her family; she seems to have contempt for her mother, and essentially ignores her father and younger sister. Jasna also enjoys partying, drinking and drug taking far too much. And in her attempts to secure the affections of a boyfriend, she essentially allows herself to be used and abused by him.

Isidora Simijonovic gives an inspired performance as Jasna; realistically conveying teen angst, anger, sadness, bewilderment, excitement, and desperation. (I also was surprised by how much I thought Isidora resembles the American actress Emma Roberts).
First-time writer and director Maja Milos has successfully made "Klip" a low-key but thought-provoking movie. And I believe this movie is a commendable starting point for potential international career's for both it's Writer/Director and Lead Actress.

Quite simply: A very good movie, which is likely to only be appreciated by those viewers who can comprehend and accept what it is... rather than what they mistakenly think it should be.
