When a man loses his girl and finds out that she's now in the porn business, he begins to explore the scene and his interest starts to grow. He then goes out to interview people in the business and ultimately wants to make his own porno with the woman who left him.

Our thoughts:
With "Life and Death of a Porno Gang" being one of my favorite films of the past few years I just became really interested in the documentary that originally inspired the film. "Made In Serbia" is by the same director and is far from as extreme as his brilliant feature film but it's very obvious that the influence is from the people they met during the making of this documentary on the small Serbian porn industry.

Let's face it - documentaries on the porn industry has been done to death. There are a couple worth watching, like "The Dark Side of Porn" is one series I found interesting, but most of them are pretty much the same thing over and over again. What "Made In Serbia" does differently is really just that it does it in Serbia instead. It focuses on some of the bigger names and shows their work, personalities and lives. The "main" plot about the interviewer Nenad Bekvalac, who wants to find his ex and make a porn with her, is very poorly put together and his entire personality just feels like an actor. You just don't care. It's when they follow some of the actors/directors that it's entertaining. But even then it's very repetitive rather than interesting, other than some brief sad scenes where they say they do porn to get through the day (but that's pretty much any job, isn't it?). Ultimately it just shows us some semi-depressing people in the porn industry and never digs deep enough to wake any emotions in the viewer.

The film, of course, shows some pornography so don't check it out with your kids or parents, but if you are interested in the porn industry and haven't went through the Serbian scene yet, this could be a place to start. There are some titles shown in the film that seemed very entertaining. Especially a gay film where Santa brings them two guys a blow-up doll and they get sad because it's a vagina, and then starts to (I think - it cuts) undress Santa. The Serbian market is mostly consisting of amateurs, sometimes just random farmers. And the quality of their porn is really in the gutter with poor cameras, worse camera work, and more often than not - not so good looking actors. But good riddance to them for trying!

There are much better documentaries about the industry, but like I said - if it's Serbia you want, this is probably the place to go (I wouldn't know since I haven't explored it). I wasn't bored with it, but it never gets exciting, interesting or very entertaining.

Positive things:
- Seeing snippets of some silly porn films.
- The film that inspired "Life and Death of a Porno Gang".

Negative things:
- Nothing new.
