traditions are unbreakable
28 August 1999 | by (Zagreb, Croatia) – See all my reviews

This movie has introduced two large things in Croatian cinematography: 1) Serb is humble and knocks on the door of the Croat to ask for help and 2) People are traditionally more connected to their belongings (little figurines) than to the people around them. Bravo maestro! The rest of the movie is genuine croatian school
