On the ninth birthday, during the 1999 war, Rreze Abdullahu has written the Diary of Fear. In that significant day, she didn’t except any gifts or any birthday-party. She had only one wish: She didn’t want to die. That day, Rreze /Ray/ went towards the Serbian soldier who was guarded the area and said to him: Today, it is my birthday, and I don’t want to die!...I just want to be alive. The soldier began to cry. Rreze got stoned, she thought the soldiers never cry. Eighteen years later, upon the ruins of the past, Rreze appears in desperation with the world that doesn’t appear to be any better. This film has been based upon the true Diary of Rreze Adbullahu.

REVIEWS:

I liked it, simple to follow yet complex to all gather Some actions were a bit blurry to uncover but i got the overall message i think The main problem would be the slow pace, slow dialogues and very slow movement of the actors as they moves in a slowmotion fashion Anyway i liked a lot the sound and music design around 7 minutes 40 secs, well done and good to built tension I dont know if the heroine is related to the author somehow or if the story is true or fiction but its well written and original, thanks !
