At the beginning of 1990s, two Croatian emigrants, economically minded Cinco and politically minded Marinko, arrive in Croatia from Germany, homesick for their families and hometowns. 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. On their trip in a motor hearse, Cinco and Marinko face many adventures, which culminate when they are stopped at Serbian barricades close to their destination. Written by nixona

Wonderfully hilarious and tragic by turns.
17 February 2000 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

An expat Croat (Cinco) has a scheme to return from Germany to his home and wife and collect his pension--faking his own death and riding alive in his coffin back to his home. But a doctor wants to harvest his organs for transplant into a wealthy German businessman. His friend Marinko, pursued by the Yugoslav Secret Police, is disturbed by visions of their dead friends singing. Together they make their way back home. Set in 1991 as Yugoslavia is falling apart, the film is by turns hilarious and tragic.
