This raucous yet poignant documentary takes us into the lives of three Serbian brothers who are without wives in a remote mountain village of eight inhabitants, all of them single men. Their broken- down house with an earthen floor has no running water, a rickety outhouse, a living room whose walls are covered with Playboy-type pictures, and one bedroom shared by all three men. While Zoran, the eldest, dreams of marrying, he fails to convince a Serbian woman to share this primitive lifestyle.
In nearby Albania there is a surplus of women, and Zoran is willing to pay a matchmaker for the opportunity to meet a group of unattached Albanian women. But at the rendezvous dinner it is obvious that these ladies are not the marrying kind. They certainly would not relish being partnered with a man who may really be looking for a housekeeper. And a further problem is that the scars left by the war in Kosovo makes it difficult for his youngest brother to consider welcoming a former "enemy." Zoran has the opportunity to extend the olive branch to the opponent. Will Zoran's attempt be fruitful? Can he fulfill his dream and renew hope in his village? Filmed with an ironic sense of humor, Village Without Women is a must-see for Anthropology, Gender Studies and Eastern Europe Studies.
