The funny side of the World War II
29 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This funny petty thieves gang led by Tetka (Olivera Markovic) and Mr. Stojcic (Zivojinovic) lead a hilarious life in the wartime Serbia. As they pose as musicians - a memorable, very functional soundtrack - they run into situations found only in an occupied country. Filmed in a low budget circumstances, this movie breaks up every myth of war heroes: just trying to save their lives would lead these guys into a heroic acts such as sabotage. Made out of several episodes, this comedy feature gives also a stunning insight into the dark side of the war - one can be shot just for kicks of an enemy soldier.

Excellent leading cast is supported by marvellous Radko Polic as evil-looking and acting German officer, who blows the the gang's cover. A cameo by very popular singer Toma Zdravkovic of the 1980s gives that true bohemic atmosphere. And "the eternal support actor" Predrag Milinkovic as the violinist also gives a good performance. "Balkan ekspres" if filled with some really laughable one-liners. Jokes are obviously hard to translate, but here are some of the quotes:

Pik (trying to escape from German officer): "I just have to give my aunt the medicine."

(The gang discusses future plans) Stojcic: "After this job, I am off to Casablanca!" Tetka: "And where is that?" Stojcic: "In Switzerland!"
