Great role of young Ana Franic!
29 August 2006 | by (Yugoslavia) – See all my reviews

The movie is nice. It's a very sad story, but all of us can learn something from it. I'm glad that Mira Furlan is playing again in Serbian movies, because she's great actress.

My humbly opinion, Ana Franic is one of best Serbian female actresses. The movie is very nice and I've enjoy it! Keep up the good work, Ana! Does anyone could upload her photo at IMDb? I've saw her in serbain sitcom 'Mjesoviti brak' playing role of Daca, and I can say that she's doing a great job. I've also saw her in Belgrade theater in play called 'Tri sorele'. Great show!

The director of 'Disi duboko' is very bright, and he's career is promising. All in all this is a great movie.

P.S. Her role in Kornjo komuna is priceless. You must see it, as soon as possible.
