Shot in Serbia in 1999, just after the war in Kosovo, it begins with a group of peasants, two men and two women, at work, sorting and bundling grapevines. The scene resembles a seventeenth-century genre painting. One of the men, without interrupting his work readying the vines to be bundled, speaks to a third woman who remains off-camera and, with a discernable foreign accent, simultaneously translates his words into French. The man gives his own detailed interpretation of the circumstances that led Serbia to invade Kosovo. As he does so he describes his own opposition both to the war and the politics of Milosevic, a minority position that he openly affirms, both in front of the camera and to those assembled around him.
