    Having created a storm of controversy following its UK cinema release, which resulted in some strongly divided and extreme critical opinions, A Serbian Film comes to DVD and Blu-ray on 3rd January 2011. Now, British film fans will have the chance to make up their own minds about one of the most talked about films of 2010.
    Reviews such as “a loathsome shocker” (Daily Star) and “vile, ugly and just repulsive” (The People) may warn off all but the most strong-stomached amongst us but the majority of critical opinion, both in print and across the web, has either been extremely positive or at least admitting of the fact that the film deserves our attention. In the words of Kim Newman (Empire Magazine): “If you collect controversy, this is a must-see, interesting, important and worth a heated discussion over the stiff drinks you’ll need after you see it.”
    Scripted by Serbian horror film critic Aleksandar Radivojevic (screenwriter of the award winning ‘Tears For Sale’), the debut feature from director Srdjan Spasojevic is an allegorical, taboo shattering film that “follows French cinema pioneers Gaspar Noe (Irreversible) and Virginie Despentes (Baise-moi) in destroying the status quo regarding on-screen violence and sexuality” (Tim Anderson, BloodyDisgusting.com). A twisted tale of an adult film star’s horrifying descent into an almost unimaginable hell, Radivojevic himself describes the film as “a diary of our molestation by the Serbian government… It’s about the monolithic power of leaders who hypnotize you to do things you don’t want to do.”
    Milos (Srdjan Todorovic) is a retired porn star leading a normal family life with his wife Maria (Jelena Gavrilovic) and six-year old son Petar in tumultuous Serbia, trying to make ends meet. 
Aware of his problems, Layla (Katarina Zutic), a former co-star, introduces Milos to Vukmir (Sergej Trifunovic), a 
mysterious, menacing and politically powerful figure in the porn business who wants Milos to star in his latest project and is willing to pay him a fee that will provide financial 
support to Milos and his family for the rest of their lives. The only condition is that Milos signs a contract insisting on his absolute unawareness of the scripted scenes they are about to shoot. 

    Encouraged by his wife to accept the job, Milos turns up for the first day of shooting and is immediately drawn into a maelstrom of unbelievable cruelty and mayhem devised by his employer, the ‘director’ of his destiny. 
It soon becomes apparent that Vukmir and his crew will stop at nothing to complete his insane vision. The only way for Milos to escape the living cinematic hell he’s entered and to save his family life is to sacrifice everything to Vukmir’s art – his pride, his morality, his sanity, and maybe even his own life.

    Confrontational, shocking, uncompromising, with hints of dark humour and absolutely unforgettable, A Serbian Film is “a well crafted, immensely indecent smut-slasher” (Variety) featuring a “remarkable performance by [Srdjan] Todorovic” (Fangoria) and is an affecting and thought provoking work of cinema that ranks alongside the likes of “Requiem For A Dream”, “Videodrome”, “Irreversible” and “Antichrist” as one of the most provocative films of its time.

    A Serbian Film will be available to buy on DVD and Blu-ray from 3rd January 2011. Special features include an introduction by Srdjan Spasojevic, exclusive to the UK home entertainment release.

      I really liked this film. I can understand how some people can't look past the graphic nature of it. It worked for me though.
