Reminiscent of Martin Scorsese's mob classic Goodfellas among other films, The Wounds is an unflinching look at the rise and fall of two teenage criminals trying to make it big while their country also burns out. The film's black humor and hyper-realistic cinematic style should lure curious and adventurous foreign film fans. First Run Features' DVD is unfortunately not the best, but the feature alone is well worth it. The film is presented in a full screen (1.33:1) aspect ratio and is available in its original Serbian language with non-removable English subtitles. The transfer is fine, although there is evident grain throughout. But it's nothing to get too worried about. The soundtrack is fine also. The disc does not come with any extras except for a brief history about First Run Features and the requisite chapter stops.Srdjan Dragojevic directed this Serbian-French drama about life in war-torn Belgrade, as narrated by teen Pinki (Dusan Pekic). In 1996, a stoned Pinki and his pal Kraut (Milan Maric) speed through Belgrade streets as the city celebrates the war's conclusion. A flashback travels to the year 1991 when Pinki and Kraut are into petty crimes, masturbation, and girls. They admire Dickie (Dragan Bjelogrlic), who shows them easy cash and sleek cars. Dickie has his girlfriend Suki (Branka Katic) do a sex demo for the teens. Many local toughs turn up on TV's Street Pulse, hosted by sexy Lidija, and the duo angles for an invite to the show. In 1993, drugs bring on a darker side, evident in full force by 1995. Shown at the 1998 Toronto Film Festival.

The movie portrays today's Belgrade youth feeling the aftermath of the war and the countries bad economic state due to sanctions. It is a very entertaining movie targeted for the younger generation. Although the movie is similar to Americas gang movies (menace to society and boys in the hood), this movie is much more destructive with a less consciousness. I enjoyed the meaning of the movie, and I think that the director successfully achieved his results.
