The Ultimate Comedy
7 November 2003 | by (Podgorica, Montenegro) – See all my reviews

Balkanski spijun (Balkan Spy) is one Ingenious Comedy, from ingenious writer/director with ingenious actors. State of art, as it was expected from such genius as Dusan Kovacevic is. A-must-see comedy, always actual, without time or space limitations.

I will never get bored of it, no matter how many times I see it. Practically, the dialogs from the whole movie are anthological. Only a thought at them brings the smile to my face.
