Srđan Koljević is one of the most active directors in the region. „The Woman with a Broken Nose“ is a second film he directed, after his directorial debut „The Red Colored Grey Truck“ (2004) which won 11 international awards. He was a screenwriter and co-writer for 10 feature films, among which are such films as „The Trap“, „Love and Other Crimes“, „The Hornet“ and “Say Why Have You Left Me”.
I wanted to make a film which offers positive energy without diverting eyes from reality.
A film about positive energy of love, even impossible love…
A film on Belgrade today, people stuck in traffic jam on Branko’s bridge, people who are trying to get in order their emotionally shattered lives.
The story is intertwined and connected as a road movie within a city, and Belgrade is portrayed in a new, slightly different way. A closeness with the characters, with a dose of humor, was of the utmost importance to us.
