Politics and personal lives are intertwined in this fascinating documentary about a Belgrade apartment divided. Two doors in the Turajlić family’s residence are locked and haven’t been opened since the communist regime confiscated parts of the property after World War 2. This was when director Mila’s mother, Srbijanka, was only two years old. The film opens with a seemingly ordinary talk between mother and daughter, but it soon becomes apparent that this is no ordinary family. Srbijanka’s life as a professor and political activist has followed every sharp curve of Serbia’s recent history. The house they live in is equally emblematic.

From communist Yugoslavia to the Balkan wars, the family and house has been marked by – and perhaps also made their mark back on Serbian history. The drama and the strong personalities, particularly Srbijanka, are striking. As is the relevance of looking at nationalism and leader figures in Europe today.
