This is probably the funniest comedy ever made in Serbia. Not a minute passes without a laugh, and citations from this movie are still actual all across Serbia.
I am not sure how much not knowing the language (Serbian) would affect the joy of watching the movie, but I'm sure that it's worth a try. I've seen it for the 4th time a few days ago, and I feel it will never become boring. Off course, it is intended to amuse you and nothing more, but it does a great job.
Most of the best Serbian actors of the decade were involved in making it, and some become popular thanks to this film. By the way, there is a mini-TV series made by adding up more material, but as far as I know it was only on TV once. There are two sequels as well; part two is very funny but not as original as this one, and part three was made with intention of making something different, and (I think) quite successfully.
