The Trap


Directed by Srdan Golubovic
Serbia, 2007
Drama, Crime
  • Serbo-Croatian
  • English


In post-Milosevic’s Serbia there is no more war. But normal life remains almost unreachable, and when Mladen is offered an only chance to save his son, he must confront moral and existential demons and decide how to measure the worth of a human life.

Our take

The confusion and blurred lines of law and morals in post-war Serbia continues to be fertile ground for both art film and genre pictures. The Trap with dark cleverness straddles the two storytelling styles: part social drama, part psychological thriller, all rooted in Belgrade’s grey zones.
