Great Yugoslavian movie
4 October 2008 | by (Serbia and Montenegro) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best Yugoslavian movies of all times. Slobodan Sijan is unorthodox director and has created a true masterpiece.

This movie is special because all of the major Yugoslavian movie stars of the era were in it. Maybe this movie is strange to English spoken people in terms of translation but since the movie is almost fully in English and the gags are more comedy mime so there is no big obstacle.

Also, as a member of ex Yugoslavian people I must say that the English actors in the movie took time to learn Serbian language. That is highly commendable, so the people that are watching can learn few of the phrases like good day, or hello, or I need phone. :)

Ouh, and you will learn something about Belgrade, Montenegro, Podgorica and the people that live here.
