In order to get a German pension, Cinco pretends to be dead and travels in a coffin. Soon, Marinko joins him because he is running away from an old agent of the Yugoslav State Security Service.

fantastic comedy, 10 out of 10
15 March 2000 | by (Vinkovci, Croatia) – See all my reviews

Cinco (Ivo Gregurevic) wants to come back home to Croatia after he's been working in Germany for 15 years. He fakes his own death so he can collect insurance money, but on his trip home with his friend Marinko (Ivica Vidovic) who is chased by Serbian (Yugoslav) secret police UDBA, he finds himself in lots of funny and strange situations. Ivo Gregurevic is the best Croatian actor today and his performance in this film is excellent. Many, many famous actors can learn from this man, because he is the right actor for any kind of role. I strongly recommend this movie to everyone who have a chance to see it! I give this movie 10/10.
