The main villain of the movie, Sefket Ramadani, is named after a fictional mobster from "Hadzija il' Bos", a popular song by "Zabranjeno Pusenje". Also, the first words that Ramadani speaks are taken from the song: "Posao je dobar, a para laka!" ("The job is good, and the money is easy"). See more »

Pretty good
15 July 2009 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

Pretty good, black humor style, Fellini style. Well composed portrait on one nation that was called Yugoslav the last time of its existence. Very well depicted characters of the regions on last 20 years of history but also much behind. Their path of national tragedy and destiny, rather than political. Dark picture, linked more to social and psyhological profile of the people than to living standards of the region. Very convincing acting, especially of the leading role - Trendafil, but sometimes brilliant when speaking of the minor roles, like the guy who plays Prkachin in the Bosnian village. Would recommend this film and give it 7 out of 10.
