Storyline

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

Fun-ny
3 April 2003 | by (Chicago, Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

All I have to say is get this movie - you will not regret it! Very funny, well written, well directed, well acted... Just see it if you can. This movie is very hard to find and its only on VHS no DVD. As soon as it comes on DVD its definitely a must buy!
