Lika, Austro-Hungarian Empire, the year is 1918, the last year of WWI. In a wasteland rocky area, among ravines there is a small gendarmery police station with several gendarmes headed by sergeant Cokula. The area is controlled by a group of outlaws led by Todor nicknamed "The Terrible". Sergeant Cokula and Todor did not bother each other, until bandits robbed the emperor's inspector.
The story, The characters, Location, Dialogues It's all perfect. The guy who came from America and the way he speaks English, Todor asking for rakija (brandy) and mainly when you see this movie, it is so obvious that everything that was seen in the movie is true in real world. The situations and ways of handling them, it's the same in real world. Some of best lines are : "Jesus, they're Russians!" and when Tanja Boskovic asks American : "Dogs?" "Wolves, there are as many of them as dogs." It is the best Yugoslav movie I've ever seen and I keep watching it again and again. And I found out about it purely accidentally, and it made me very happy to have seen it, and I can't believe that I've never heard of that movie before just a couple of months ago. I recommend it to everyone.
