The Son

Ines Tanovic, 109 minutes, Narrative, in Bosnian with Arabic and English subtitles, 2019  

Followed by a discussion with the director.

Rated 16+

Adopted son Arman, 18 years old, has an unstable character and cannot find peace in the struggle to find his identity. His parents and younger brother, 14-year-old brother Dado, who was born after Arman's adoption, suffer due to his restlessness and the enormous energy he lets out in different ways. He plays truant, he takes drugs, he hijacks a tram, he even falls in love with Milica, a Serb girl from East Sarajevo. Adolescence is difficult for both brothers, but it is the younger one who is imperceptibly and increasingly drawn into a vicious circle of addiction to prove, of the wish to prove himself and the need to be as cool as his older brother.

The movie has been nominated for Best Film at Sarajevo Film Festival and Bosphorus Film Festival.
