One in a lifetime ...
26 January 2009 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

Through spontaneous gestures and constant assiduity, Mihajlo, a graduate, with great effort manages to draw Danica's attention, the girl of his dreams.

This is a story of the past, where Mihajlo and Danica, now husband and wife, look at their son, on prom night, and reminiscent of their own days back in high school.

This movie is not all about everlasting love, but also about the days without worries, high school days. It's very clean and moderate, and presents itself as a ideal of a graduate class.

10 out of 10, from me, because of his composed idea for how different aspects of life are not at all far away.
