the old zagreb charm
28 December 2007 | by (Zagreb) – See all my reviews

The old-Zagreb city charm! There's a series of movies portraying the city life Zagreb in between the two world wars, as well as that in the 1970s and 80s, but very few left so many memorable characters, sentences and song themes, as did 'Tko pjeva zlo ne misli'. Gospon Fulir', an old charmer, is one of Croatia's most famous movie characters of all times. We all remember Franjo's legendary saying "Perice, go to Znidarsic' place and pick up a litre" - meaning a litre of wine), which has become a popular joke sentence in Croatia's everyday life. Mirjana Bohanec is unforgettable with her 'Gospon Fulir, you are only flattering to me'. Although, the charms of the conversations can be lost in translation, it's by far Croatia's number one movie!
