Ante and Dusko are two Dream Team players. Besides being a Croat and a Serb who fought on opposite sides in the war, both used to be volleyball players. Today, they live normal lives, one in a remote craggy region, the other in Banja Luka. There is little chance of them ever meeting again. The International War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague has indicted Colonel Skoko, a hero to some, a criminal to the others. The two main witnesses to his defense, Mato and Joso, have disappeared without a trace. Skoko's sponsor from the intelligence circles, Antisa, wants to find two men resembling Mato and Joso, to impersonate them before the Hague investigators, and hopefully bring down the indictments. Naturally, the two men he finds are none other than our heroes, Ante and Dusko Written by
I was really surprised with this movie. I expected another solid movie from Croatian film-makers but instead we have very good movie about two people who find themselves in weird situation. Ante Jukić (Goran Navojec) is Croat and Duko Katran (Borko Perić) is Serb who besides fought on opposite sides in the war, both used to be volleyball players. There is little chance of them ever meeting again. At the same time Hague has indicted Colonel Skoko. The two main witnesses to his defense, Mato and Joso, have disappeared without a trace and now Skoko's contact Antia must find two people who look like Mato and Joso. You can guess who might that be.
So we've got very good script and actors. Especially Borko Perić, who is brilliant in the role of Duko. It is funny to see how people are thinking in these situations and director Dejan orak very good showed us at first how Ante and Duko can't stand each other, but towards the end they actually have same goals. 7/10
