A married couple wish to leave their village by car. But the village is under siege by a ruthless militia who are seemingly both friend and foe - ally and executioner. Autumn waltz is a powerful film poem dealing with the banality of evil and specifically with the atrocities that took place on a daily basis during the Balkan war which ravaged the region during the early 1990s. This is a film which stays with you for ages after having experienced it, and for many, it will no doubt never leave again.
