It's a great and touching film mostly because it's a true story
12 September 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film has to be in the top 100 of all Yugoslav films it has a very good story line and whether your a man or not you'll feel like a woman (no offense woman i personally really like you) it is mostly typical of what life would be like in the Yugoslavia without the war i am from there myself and it really is like the film. The good part about the film is that it makes you feel good and the other good part is that the film is based on a true story well thats all i would like to say.
