Piece Comment

Review of RN Documentary: From Brooklyn to Banja Luka

In this portrait of modern romance, we meet a very charming and sweet couple living in Holland. The husband is American and the wife is Serbian. Producer Dheera Sujan has provided us with a loving portrait of the couple as they discuss what they like and don't like about each other and what brings them together. My favorite moment is when the husband sings so sweetly. It's very moving. Sometimes, they laugh too much and it takes too long to get to the deeper and more serious parts of their life. But this is such an ideal piece to air on Valentine's Day and it would appeal to most listeners. I'd highly recommend stations to give it an audition. International couples haven't had that much focus or examination. This half-hour would be great paired with another Radio Netherlands piece or another Val Day piece to make an entertaining slice of life special.
