AN EPISODE IN THE LIFE OF AN IRON PICKER Di­rected by Da­nis Tanovic. Star­ring Se­nada Ali­manovic, Nazif Mu­jic A scrap-metal

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - CINEMA -

scav­enger deals with the grim news that the lo­cal hospi­tal re­quire a small for­tune for his wife’s oper­a­tion. The com­pound “doc­u­men­tary-re­al­ism” is much overused in film crit­i­cism. But, if ever a film de­served to be so de­scribed, it is Da­nis Tanovic’s rig­or­ous study of life among Bos­nia’s Ro­many com­mu­nity. Us­ing lo­cal people who ac­tu­ally lived the story, the piece is gritty, but oc­ca­sion­ally hard work. Club, QFT, Belfast, 75 minDC
