This movie is absolutely fantastic. It is refreshing in so far as only few ego's have been hurt in this film. Usual Balkan cinematography is all about blood and guts, human suffering and death. This is not a documentary movie, this is a feel good movie and any idiot that cannot see this should not comment and have such strong opinion about anything in their sad and pitiful lives. Director Sotra, great job, keep up the good work. Actors are great interpreting time and place but that is the secondary to other points. Film shows and celebrates the tolerance between people (eg. Czechoslovakian Maestro) that despite not understanding him he is integral part of the community. The songs are well played and costumes are elegant. Not to mention that almost everyone, including the supporting extras are "drop dead attractive". The movie depicts warmth and humility of a small community where they know to accept good and bad in people. At the end of the day they are all forgiven and a nice story is here to stay. There are so may nice human points in the movie that only requires closer scrutiny of watching it several times over. I would strongly recommend this film.
