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
This title was very well executed for such a simple concept. The introduction does well to grip the viewer from the start, which helps with the slow pace (which itself isn't a bad thing). The main of the film does well to keep the viewer interested with the many different stories often giving many things to look forward to near the end of the film, and nearing the end of the film gives a lot of last minute surprises that helps lead towards the final scene which doesn't dance around the point any more than it needs to.
As already said in other reviews, one of the things that adds to the charm is there is a lot of topics for a film based in Croatia that have been covered many times before by tons of different Crotatian films, but this film completely avoids even a slight mention of these topics and sticks to the actual aim of the film; to tell a story that has no relevance to what is happening in the country politically.
