Pat Caplan ‘WE ARE ALL NEIGHBOURS’: REVIEW

During the first part of the film the front line, fifteen miles away, can be almost ignored most of the time; village life remains relatively normal and relations between Catholics and Muslims are still good. We are introduced to two women and their families, those of Nusreta, a Muslim, and Slavka, a Catholic. In an early scene, Nusreta makes pastry while she talks to Tone: ‘It’s the same as before, we must get along. Because we have to live together – Serbs, Croats, Muslims. That’s how it’s always been. And yes, definitely in the future.’
