The Disobedient
World Dramatic


Serbian with English subtitles, 2014, 112 minutes, color, Serbia

As children, Leni and Lazar were best friends. When Lazar returns from extensive travels abroad for his father's funeral, Leni yearns to reconnect with her childhood soul mate but still feels the sting of their years of estrangement. Nevertheless, hoping to escape the doldrums of adult life, she embarks with Lazar on an impromptu bicycle trip across a gorgeous, sunbaked countryside. As they revel in raucous bouts of disobedience, Leni must decide if their shared language of misbehavior is a bond upon which she can build a life.

The Disobedient perfectly captures the rush of youthful rebellion and the euphoria of finding a kindred spirit, but uses its vivid portrait of that bliss to facilitate a clever and creative exploration of the stumbling blocks one encounters while growing up. Mina Đukić’s playful and contemplative feature debut uses immaculately composed visuals and an infectious score to transport us to a world of joyful innocence, but reminds us that no matter how fervently we may yearn to do so, it’s impossible to stay.
