Goofs

In one scene, a chopper takes off from in front of the hospital, disappearing into the Belgrade skyline. In the distance, "Palata Beograd", the then-highest tower block on the Balkans, can clearly be seen. In 1972, when the story is supposed to be taking place, the tower was still being built and far from finished. See more »

Remarkable...
26 January 2005 | by (Uzice, Serbia) – See all my reviews

One of those movies that keeps you awake at night and makes you wonder about things like bio-terrorism and stuff like that... Like your own safety in those "what if" situations... Absolutely every single segment of this movie is shocking and frightening... Music theme containing some middle-East motifs keeps playing in your mind from the very first minute of the movie, and stays in it even after you have watched it. Horrifying story of pilgrim who came back and brought along one of the deadliest diseases known to men surely sounds scary, but what makes it even more creepy is the fact that it's based on true story... The event that made the whole world vulnerable, and reminded us that no matter how strong we appear to be, there's always one invisible enemy we cannot fight and cannot defeat. Cast is terrific, some of the best Yugoslavian actors had their career highlights in this movie... Especially brilliant role of Rade Serbedzija. If you like this type of movies, this is a movie that you just cannot miss... And if you don't... Well..rent it out anyway. Highest recommendation.
