Paskaljevic proves he is deservedly Serbia's greatest film director. Joint by his son, Vladimir, he created what we see as a perfect allegory of Serbian Fatalism, hailed in this movie as the irrational Optimism. The overall tone may strike as overtly pessimistic and critical, but possesses an intense empathic element. The script presents a huge gallery of distorted characters and provides redemption for each and every. Powerful, yet extremely subtle interventions on the part of the director managed to bring the unspoken lines of the script to the audience. Truly a lesson in film making. Acting does not stand behind. Great and majestic cast of experienced craftsmen. All the actors gave their best at creating a perfect balance and making this five-story feature into a unique and highly integrated master piece. Last and definitely not least - Fantastic music! Aleksandar Simic rightfully takes the place as one of the authors in the film, spilling a wistful and bitter river of emotions right into the throats and hearts of the audience. As far as we can rate this work, it is a perfect ten. Bulls eye! Bravo!
