Press Quotes

Croatian frosh helmer Vuk Rsumovic's Venice Critics' Week winner is a captivating story of human versus animal savagery

Guy Lodge, Variety

Like Truffaut's Wild Child, Rsumovic's moving feature is based on a true story, here, a boy living with wolves in the Bosnian mountains. Attempts to "civilize" him in a Belgrade orphanage lead to heartbreak as well as friendship and ironically, the boy winds up enmeshed in the brutality of the Balkan battlefields. Denis Muri's stunning depiction of the animalistic boy is remarkable and Rsumovic sagely leaves us at the end questioning what it is to be a human.
