great hood story
9 January 2006 | by (Serbia and Montenegro) – See all my reviews

This movie is quite nice in a way. Its humor, typical characters from a hopeless generation, present story which is not happy or funny at all.

Although during the movie i laughed all the way, this movie carries a sad, complicated story about purity/depression/fear/hopelessness of a several young people.

Several stories of several people who live next door, about their dreams, hopes, and fears and the time they waste.

Nothing's good in their hood. All they have is each other, whether they realize that or not. - that movie sets this kind of mood.

This everyday story brought to life by good actors is presented in a humoristic movie, which is sure to bring you some laughs.

It's a fun movie, non pretentious.
