One of the best from Croatia
21 July 1999 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

One of the best movies produced by Croatian cinematography. Yet another living proof for the Seinfeldian paradigm: "a story about nothing", told in a loving way, with great cast and charming music, can be so much stronger than any of those modern special-effect Hollywood films. In fact there is a special effect which makes this movie so great. It's love.
