Excellent old school movie !

This movie reminds me of the "old" days in ex - Yugoslavia. I'm not "Yugoslav nostalgic", because now I'm "just" 30 years old, first time I saw this movie was couple of years ago and it reminds me of the days when I was a kid in my dear old Opatija, Croatia. The time, people, slow life, almost everything was exactly as it was back then when people were in love with each other and having fun together not having fun in front of the TV, Internet, Play stations or else .. This movie shows very good how little we need to be lucky in life .. And this is definitely one of those movies you're lucky to look back here and then. It's similar to Avanti! with Jack Lemmon, another movie that's one of those showing you how to live life @ fullest ..
