Director Danis Tanovic revisits the milieu of his first film, No Man's Land, in Cirkus Columbia, which uses the absurdist tale of a man returning to his native Herzegovinian village in 1991 to illustrate the beginnings of the bloody internecine strife in Bosnia. Now that the communists are out of power in his backwater town and an Ustase-connected party is in, Divko (Miki Manojlovic, also staring in this year’s Solemn Promise) returns home with revenge on his mind. His primary target is wife Lucija (Mira Furlan), who failed to follow him to Germany when he was forced to flee some 20 years before.

Arriving in a ruby red Mercedes, accompanied by gorgeous girlfriend Azra, Divko evicts Lucija and their immature 20-year-old son, Martin, from the family home. After flaunting his wealth and generally behaving badly, Divko ultimately gets a chance to prove he's not such a mean guy after all. Above all, Tanovic's fourth feature succeeds in making clear the incredulity with which most people regarded the thought of war and dissolution of Yugoslavia, as well as the machinations of various opportunistic groups. Winner, Audience Award, Sarajevo Film Festival.
