watched this film for several times!
7 August 2007 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

I agree with the previous comment from Sweden. The film is really great.It is based on the book, whose writer is Vuk Draskovic It is worth seeing, for the Serbian, and also other people from SFR Yugoslavia.It reveals some important things. You cannot stay indifferent after watching this movie.It has historical, love and thriller elements. On the Festival in Moscow, some said that this movie should have been filmed much earlier. Zarko Lausevic is really, really excellent!Aleksandar Bercek, Bojana Maljevic also, and others. For the end i want to say hello... to the great actor, the leading role in this film, wherever he is!! If you liked this movie, you should watch some other films from M. Lekic,with Zarko Lausevic: like - Better than escape, It happened on this day
