”Touted as the most controversial film of all time”

Brooke, M. (2011) A Serbian Film.(Movie review). Sight and Sound, (2), p.74.

”Srdan Spasojevic’s debut arrives in Britain minus four minutes, shorn by the British Board of Film Classification on the official grounds of sexual violence, sexualised violence and the portrayal of children in a sexualised/abusive context.”
”retired porn star Milos (Srdan Todorovic, an Emir Kusturica regular) is lured back to his
old profession by the promise of a whopping fee and an opportunity to push back the boundaries of art.” mirrors what the objective of the actual film wants to achieve.
