Definitely worth looking! This movie presents highlights of Domanovic's stories, Nusic's dramas and a lot of original humor, all rolled into great, but not widely known film. However, it has the same fate as other non-low-minded and non-sexual-humor movies which is to be misunderstood by majority of the people who have seen it, or to be more precise, just throw a glance on it. Lazar Ristovski is playing a role of story guide, stranger finding himself in a country that should be his fatherland, but is to the most bizarre boundaries spoiled and ruined by actual government. The country is ruled by mindless dictators, old fellows disconnected from reality, having no touch with the people themselves. The people are not only ones who suffer from their lunacy, the police and dictators themselves are shown as total misfortunates. My recommendations: if you find Orwell's works interesting and are a fan of Monty Python, you have to see this movie. Of course, if you are capable of finding it
