The film is based on a popular play by Dusan Kovacevic, which was enacted in Belgrade in the early 1970s. The play was originally set in 1972, but Kovacevic decided to move the story of the movie to the 1930s, to get a darker, "gangster" feel, more suitable to its dark comedy. See more »

yes this is a great and unique piece of film making very original with good acting and directing. because of the poor translation i didn't understand all of the jokes and i am sure that i miss some good ones. all in all this movie is great but far not flawless. my vote is seven because of the lack of lovable characters(there aren't any )the figures presented in this movie are very one-sided.this makes the film hard to like not like Kusturica's movies. anyway i recommend the film to those who likes eastern-European movies and loves grotesque films don't watch this film if you like warm, emotional (i mean positive emotions) films with heroes and with character development
