Raindance 2016 reviews: Don’t Knock Twice, Incarnation, Noma: Forgiving Apartheid
Serbian cinema, what little we get of it in the UK, is the kind of thing you often associate with the former, with movies concerned with its history and local culture (see the rather lovely basketball flick, We Will Be World Champions). Incarnation, though, is a lightning bolt from the latter – a film that’s less concerned with heritage and more with getting the hairs to stand up on the back of your neck. Playing out like Edge of Tomorrow meets Collateral, it sees a guy (Stojan Đorđević) wake up on a bench with amnesia in the middle of the city, only for a group of assassins to kill him. Seconds later, he wakes up on the bench again. And the same thing happens over and over.
