Director Andrea Staka’s background as a Swiss citizen of Bosnian and Croatian heritage informs this tender and insightful film about fifty-something Ruža, who left Belgrade 25 years ago and now runs a cafeteria in Zurich, keeping her Serbian roots well hidden; her coworker Mila, an older Croation who longs to return to her homeland; and the impulsive, itinerant Ana who has fled the war in Sarajevo and bursts into the quiet lives of the other two women. This exploration of displacement in our era was the winner of both Best Film and Best Actress (for Mirjana Karanovic as Ana) at the Sarajevo Film Festival and the Golden Leopard at Locarno.
