Powerful drama
24 July 2013 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Very rare movie based on historical facts.

The story about survival of peasants in a poor catholic village in Herzegovina who were terrorized by government officials and forced to sell their crop of tobacco to crooked wholesalers at bargain prices.

The story spans over three periods of time: during Kingdom of Yugoslavia, during WW II and Italian occupation, and extends after the end of WW II during Federative Republic Of Yugoslavia.

The DVD printed in Serbia has glitches in video and runs 1 hour 27 minutes. It seems like some scenes were cut or missing.

Very good drama based on a script written by Mirko Kovac.
