Two men live within a set of almost identical abandoned bungalows, someone else enters this secluded space and its patterns are disturbed. New bonds form and old ones shift.

  • Review

    All the Cities of the North is a film directed by the new Serbian director, Dane Komlijen, in his first feature film. THe film begins with two men living in an isolated bungalow with very limited interactions with each other. Protagonists, Boban and Boris live their spartan yet peaceful lives in their white room with a blue tent until this is broken by the appearance of Dan, who tries to take both Boban and Boris to the outside world. The boundaries between space and time can be seen through such locations as an abandoned hotel in Montenegro. The logic of the narrative is portrayed in an ambiguous and an abstract manner. All the Cities of the North allows various images and sounds to exist simultaneously and in doing so maintains the traces of a past which is being destroyed. [JANG Byungwon]
