BELGRADE, April 2 (Itar-Tass) - Serbian film director Emir Kusturica is going to make a new film about illegal trade in human organs in Kosovo, the Netpress news site reported on Tuesday.
“I think it’s going to take me three years to finish my new work. It’s going to be a long film that will require long preparations and considerable investments. The script’s idea belongs to my daughter. Perhaps, trade in human organs is one of the most urgent themes of our century,” Kusturica told journalists in Belgrade.
The film director said he would shoot his new film in Russia, first, because according to the storyline most of the action will take place exactly in Russia. Second, it’s impossible to shoot in Kosovo because of the complicated political situation in the province.
Kusturica said that the storyline will resonate with works by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. The film will tell about a Serb who has been living in Paris for many years and decides to try on the image of Rodion Raskolnikov from Dostoyevsky’s novel “Crime and Punishment”. That takes him first to St. Petersburg and later to Kosovo. The film’s working title is “My Dear Fyodor!”
