We need our own Cameron, or three of them!

17 June 2010 | Nidzara Ahmetasevic

Nidzara Ahmetasevic “What happened should never, ever have happened. The families of those who died should not have had to live with the pain and the hurt of that day and with a lifetime of loss. Some members of our armed forces acted wrongly. The Government is ultimately responsible for the conduct of the armed forces and for that, on behalf of the Government, indeed, on behalf of our country, I am deeply sorry.”

Yugoslav Movie Star Bekim Fehmiu Found Dead

One of the most famous actors in the former Yugoslavia, Bekim Fehmiu, has died in Belgrade at the age of 74.


Serbian Interior Minister Ivica Dacic confirmed the death of the star, saying that the actor was found shot in his apartment in Belgrade today.

It is assumed that Fehmiu committed suicide, Dacic said, because the shots were fired from a gun which is registered to Fehmiu's name.

Born in Sarajevo in 1936, Fehmiu gained popularity in Yugoslavia in his role of handsome Bora in the movie Skupljaci Perja, directed by Aleksandar Sasa Petrovic in 1967.

Soon afterward Fehmiu began an international career, starring mostly in European productions, particularly in Italy and also in the US, collaborating with director Dean de Laurentiis and John Huston, Olivia de Hevilend, Ava Gardner, Dirk Bogart, Charles Aznavour and other world stars.

In late 1980s Fehmiu, who was also considered one of the most handsome actors in the region, announced he was retiring from public life after roles in some 45 films.

As with everything, 300 years from now, this guy will be Bojan Fehmicic. What a joke this "jugaslavia" was, good riddance. Rip to one of the greatest Albanian actors along with Aleksander Moisiu and other big names produced by the motherland.

Like his pure albanian name says it all, "Bekim", was such a "Blessing" for his country. Rest In Peace, honorable man and actor, that only comes once in a lifetime! :(

He retired to protest against Serb nationalism!
2010-06-16 20:25:01
In 1987 in sign of protest to the Yugoslav regime for the Ethnic cleansing of Albanians, he walked off the stage of the Yugoslav Drama Theatre in Belgrade, during the staging of the play Madame Colontein by Agnette Pleyal, in which he played Lenin and Stalin, publicly saying goodbye to the theater, and later to films as well.

Bekim Fehmiu was a great patriot, he loved Serbia and Belgrade in which it lived and we loved him, and his films. He did not want to be inclined to separatists in Kosovo, they are carried out daily pressure on him and it's impact on his act of suicide.

The fact that he was living in Belgrade shows it is multicultural. Wonder why he killed himself though? Perhaps, like many actors/celebrities, he couldn't stand to be old and unattractive.

Bekim Fehmiju was an ethnic Albanian (Kosovan) theater and film actor. And the reason he quitted acting in Yugoslavia was, quote: “Because of the anti-Albanian ‘breath’” This happened back in 1987 in the play “Madame Kolontine” where he played Leninin & Stalinin. He played in Hollywood, and Europe! Rest in peace dear Bekim Fehmiu
RIP Bekim

Interestingly he is referred to as a yugoslav movie star. was he serbian he would've been referred to staunchly as a serb actor. I love the objectivity around here.

A few nights ago at Kalemegdanska Terasa, overlooking the river, mingling with the who’s who of the legal scene in Serbia, I had the chance to meet some very serious looking people, while they had their guard down.


Novi Sad offers some provincial charm, a relaxed atmosphere, lively bars and restaurants and some cultural highlights.


A number of real estate agencies in Croatia have indicated that they expect property prices to drop in 2010, the Croatian Times reports.



The likely demise of the Living Room will leave Belgrade’s rockers without a full-time venue of note.


Since the signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement in 1995 a number of books have emerged that focus on post-war, internationally driven state-building in Bosnia and Herzegovina.


There are many contenders for title ‘The worst film of all time’. The remake of the 1981 original, Clash of the Titans 3D, is a worthy addition to the shortlist.
