Trivia

In the scene where Olja gives a bath to old Maksimilijan, him pulling her in the tub with him wasn't in the script. It was a prank that actor Mica Tomic pulled on his fellow actress Melita Bihali, and the director Slobodan Sijan (who knew about it beforehand) left it in the film. See more »

Goofs

The 'tone film' playing in Djenka's theater is "Prica jednog dana", which was released in 1941, seven years after the events in "Maratonci trce pocasni krug" take place. See more »

Laki is a little bit nervous!!!
16 June 2000 | by (Despotovac, Serbia) – See all my reviews

This movie was my first movie. I have one anecdote about this movie. As a child it wasn't allow me to see whole movie, ( my parents says that is because of ticklish scene where two people make love ). I was mad, really mad, I had to leave the room behind the scene, and after that father call me to watch the rest of the movie. But I didn't watch the movie, I was only thinking what was it, what was it...( they never told me what was it, I find out myself ). The movie is classic, and it is appropriate to say that this movie is the best Serbian movie ever made. I think that most of the people in Serbia can agree with me. "Laki is a little bit nervous" was phrase of Billy Piton, and I think that everybody knows that phrase like they was born with those few words.

This movie is for watching all the time. Can not be boring. Every time when I watch movie,I see some new expression, and again and again... Zoran Radmilovic is dead but his spirit is still alive here in my heart, and in hearts every man and woman who loved this movie and the other performances of Zoran Radmilovic.
