Storyline

In 1943, group of Croatian soldiers overtake a strategically important point in western Bosnia with a goal to destroy a group of communist partisans. On the way they met some supernatural phenomena, and the action itself went very badly because the partisans ambushed them. The main character Martin inherits silver cigarette case from a dying soldier. This act connects to the story in 1993 when we meet Martins grandson Tomo. He is one of six soldiers of the Croatian army who have come to the same place in Bosnia to meet the same phenomena and similar fate. Written by nitorch-moviewatcher

The best Croatian war movie
8 April 2008 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

This movie is phenomenal, and, dare I say, the best Croatian war movie ever filmed since it's independence. Croatia has gone through a rough cultural period after the war. Some of it's films were either politically indoctrinated, or just simply bad, but be it as it may, Croatias filmmakers lost respect that they once held as a part of the Yugoslavian film makers. Little by little, people just discarded all Croatian on celluloid as "bad", and would rather indulge in an afternoon Holywoodly brainwash, in opposition to searching for the "needle in the stack of hay" of the Croatian movie. Needless to say, this movie brings it all home. Superb script and out of this world directing, followed by some tremendously good acting by Filip Sovagovic and Velibor Topic just might bring back our faith in the Croatian cinematography. Little mistakes in the casting were visible (the Ustase commanders were terrible), but still, this movie deserves nothing less of a pure

9/10
