This powerful Bosnian drama, focusing on a middle class Sarajevo family who are drawn together in a time of tragedy, is both culturally specific and entirely universal.
Our Everyday Life is concerned with the day-to-day existence of the Susic family in Sarajevo, living in the shadow of the Balkan wars. Muhamed (Emir Hadžihafizbegović) and Marija (Jasna Ornela Bery) live with their unemployed 40-year-old son Sasha (Uliks Fehmiu), a struggling war veteran. Their daughter Senada (Vedrana Seksan) fled the city to escape the war and keeps in contact through Skype. As each member of the family deals with a jolting experience, old wounds resurface and the family must find a new way forward. In her debut feature, Ines Tanović and her superb cast play the drama that shakes the family with understatement rather than melodrama, and her film is immensely moving as result.

'Notable for its warmth and intimacy... It says a lot that, after the open ending, most viewers would be happy to spend another 90 minutes with the Susic clan.' - Variety
