It's pretty fucked up. Amazon describes it this way:

"Milos, a retired adult film star, leads a normal family life with his wife Maria and six-year old son Petar in tumultuous Serbia, trying to make ends meet. A sudden call from his former colleague Layla will change everything. Aware of his financial problems, Layla introduces Milos to Vukmir - a mysterious, menacing and politically powerful figure in the adult film business. A leading role in Vukmir's production will provide financial support to Milos and his family for the rest of their lives. A contract insists on his absolute unawareness of a script they will shoot. From then on, Milos is drawn into a maelstrom of unbelievable cruelty and mayhem devised by his employer, "the director" of his destiny. Vukmir and his cohorts will stop at nothing to complete his vision. In order to escape the living cinematic hell he's put into, and save his family's life, Milos will have to sacrifice everything - his pride, his morality, his sanity, and maybe even his own life."

That's more or less a pretty accurate decription. There are, of course, a few very sick twists along the way. Watched it last night, it's got more style than I thought it would and some effective elements of what seemed like black humor in and amdist the sex and death that make up a lot of the movie. It's been decscribed as plotless torture porn but there's very definitely a story here and the film makes some interesting allegories in regards to the state of the country where it was made.

Strong stuff (*and the US Blu-ray I watched is supposedly cut by a little bit too*) and a lot of people just flat out will not like this movie. Can't fault anyone for that. I don't know that I 'enjoyed it' the same way I might enjoy lighter fare but I'm glad to have seen it. It's well acted and possibly a little bit smarter than a lot of its detractors are giving it credit for.
