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

the best Croatia's film ever made
14 November 2001 | by (Buje, Croatia) – See all my reviews

This is the best film ever made in Croatia. Every single point, from the scenario, costumes, music, camera, editing and lights to the astonishing performances of the actors, is fantastic. I am sorry that all available tracks are in such poor condition and that it makes it hard to show the film to the audience outside Croatia. Hopefully that will change soon, I think someone took over the job of repairing it. I am also sorry that no contemporary Croatia's director is that good at the moment. I hope someone new will show up with that much style and give us some new good films like this one.

All glory to Nikola Tanhofer!
