Noir in it's best.
10 September 2002 | by (Zagreb, Croatia) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie yesterday for the first time, 35 years after his making. It surprised me, because it is strong, it has great story which is told beautifully, and cast is great - all "best of" former Yugoslav and Croatian actors are there:). Style remind of French new wave from 50's.

Story began when Ivo Bajsic (Bekim Fehmiu)commits suicide, by throwing himself from skyscraper buffet, on main Zagreb square, after having couple brandy. We are then accurately and retrospectively drown into a story which tells us all about indecency, corruption, desires, lust, sins and weaknesses. Movie criticize socialism as society in which individuals have been crashed. Leading musical theme is song "Town" from Croatian composer-singer Drago Mlinarec, which is about solitude and sadness, but also nice memories in big cities... Film is directed with strong but also poetic hand of Fadil Hadzic.

Great! I was really impress with this little-big movie:)
