I fell in love with this film when it was first released and I've been chasing a DVD copy of it for years. I know pretty much every line in the film (I know, I know, I have no life...) For those of you who didn't know, the DVD was finally released in early 2005...and there was much rejoicing :-D.
The DVD release has English subtitles but I don't think you will gain as much pleasure out of it if you don't speak Serbian. Despite its relatively low budget it's really well directed and produced, and masterfully shot.
It's Srdjan Dragojevic's film-school graduation piece which shot him into instant fame. And he kept it going with every new film he made. He's a truly original world-class director equally capable of making entertaining films and serious art. I really hope he gets his big shot overseas one day.
