THE SAMURAI IN AUTUMN (JESEN SAMURAJA): Action RomCom From Serbia
Director Danilo Backovic may very well have delivered the first fight film from Serbia with The Samurai In Autumn (Jesen Samuraja), a film that aims to blend realistic karate and MMA action with comic melodrama and action.
The story follows a disgraced karate champion who returns to his hometown where he falls in love with the single mother of a young boy in the karate class he teaches and joins the underground fight circuit to support the lifestyle he thinks he needs to please the woman he loves.
The trailer for this one appears to treat both sides of this particular coin with equal respect and the appeal in both directions appears pretty clear. No subtitles on the trailer, unfortunately, but take a look below!
