Summary/Abstract: Unlike other regions of the world, the Balkans has not enjoyed the attention of many Western and American writers and filmmakers. The most obvious reason is that the region remained quite obscure. Moreover, the information on the Balkans has been scarce and therefore quite often the image is conventional and ultimately imbued with stereotypes. However, finally there are enough literary works and films on the Balkans and their characters. Besides screening literary works the films about the Balkans were born of three reasons: in order to portray several local historical figures, due to the need to locate romances, to use the negative reputation of the region or simply to tell adventurous travels in exotic places and even stories based on real facts. Obviously motivations could also mix.
