When Djenka arrives at the Topalovic home for the last time, he is first being chased by a stray dog and then when he knocks at the door the glass from the door collapses and crashes in front of him. Neither of these scenes were scripted or planned, but the actor Bora Todorovic's reactions were so natural that the scenes remained in film. See more
The movie is set in the 1930s, but the 'tone film' that Djenka plays in his theater ("Prica jednog dana") was made in 1941. Tone films weren't made in Serbia until 1940s. See more
