Storyline

A bus and a truck are moving towards each other along a two-way traffic highway on a rainy day. At the very beginning we learn that a reckless driver of another car will cause them to collide while trying to pass the bus; we even learn what seats will spell doom for their occupants. The rest of the movie follows two streams of events on the bus and on the truck, getting us to know and like a wide variety of characters, wondering which ones will end up being casualties and holding breath for our favourites. The epilogue brings some more surprises... Written by Anonymous

lo-fi masterpiece
21 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

The most unfortunate thing is that a very few people (outside Croatia) will ever see this film. A thrilling little masterpiece, it has the best chance of being the best movie ever in Croatian poor filmography. Great movie!

Eternal glory to Nikola Tanhofer - died 1998.
