Film Guardian of the Frontier (Varuh meje; Maya Weiss, 2002)

I was disappointed with Guardian of the Frontier that was shown tonight by the Duke University Screen Society. It promised to be a contemporary Eastern European version of the classic 1972 adventure film Deliverance, about three young college women taking a river canoe journey. I found it unconvincing and flat, and was surprised to see that it has won some awards - maybe I missed some cultural context that would have made this more appealing. You can read my more detailed imdb review.
