Osveta plot

The story begins in the Balkans (1897-1902) where the poor Macedonian Miter saves the life of the rich Turkish Osman. A deep and close friendship develops that, despite many contradictions, lasts for years... until the day that Miter's nephew Pavel becomes the plaything of hatred and violence between the two families. 70 years later, the law of tradition will drive Orchan, Osman's first descendant, to Belgium to avenge Pavel, who now owns a Macedonian restaurant in Antwerp. However, before discovering the true nature of the man he is supposed to kill, he becomes his friend and falls in love with his daughter Els...

Film about ethnic/religious contradictions that provokes family obligations, resulting in retaliation and revenge.

Was a bit unclear for a while because of time jumps but also because of the appearance of the characters, quite similar in my opinion.

However, clarifies as the film progresses in order to formulate a clear - and let's say : edifying - concluding objection in the end. Definitely a better moment of the movie.

3 to 3.5.
