Not being a huge fan of croatian films, I was honestly surprised by this one. It is, for sure,the best croatian film in last ten years. It begins with an episode about a war in Bosnia, and just when you think "another croatian war movie" everything changes. Composed of six short stories connected only by the fact that one of the protagonists from the first one appears in each of them (as a leading or as a supporting role), film depicts some of croatia`s social problems. Not all stories are of equally good, but all together they make well rounded film. I should also point out surprisingly good acting especially from some of the young actors, such as Jasmin Telalovic and Marija Tadic. Film has some imperfections and can`t be compared to european masterpieces, but it is a true refreshment in croatian film industry and is worth watching.Well done, and we can only hope this film will be a step closer to quality film production in Croatia and not just an exception!
