Storyline

Djuro is a Romany, he has a large, happy family, and earns a living appearing in Serbian porn films. And it's through his sarcastic perspective that we follow the story of the Croatian war veteran Martin. He falls in love with a beautiful girl who plays Little Red Riding Hood in a porn version of the fairy tale. She is also a prostitute. To be with her, Martin has to buy her from her pimp. A tragicomic story of love in a world where it seems all human values are put up for sale or destined for cynical destruction Written by Warsaw Film Festival

Trivia

The cemetery scene was filmed in the impressive and beautiful Mirogoj Cemetery, which is considered to be among the more noteworthy landmarks in the City of Zagreb. The cemetery inters members of all religious groups: Catholic, Orthodox, Muslim, Jewish, Protestant, Latter Day Saints; irreligious graves can all be found. In the arcades are the last resting places of many famous Croatians. The cemetery was created in 1876 on a plot of land owned by the linguist Ljudevit Gaj. Architect Hermann Bollé designed the main building. The construction of the arcades, the cupolas, and the church in the entryway was begun in 1879. Work was finished in 1929. See more »

Unconvincing
31 May 2008 | by (Ljubljana, Slovenia) – See all my reviews

I saw the film at the First Mediterranean Film Festival Split (27th May till 31st May 2008) and I was rather disappointed. The idea of the film is not uninteresting but the story is not so convincing. It's another one Bresan's film about Croats and Serbs. The love story between the Serbian prostitute (Nada Sargin) and Croatian warrior (Ivan Herceg) is unconvincing, without stronger motivation and suffocated with too much by the way events. The film wish to be the drama and the comedy at the same time but the result is pretentious. NIJE KRAJ suffers of awkward direction, pale photography and too much voice-over. The rhythm of the film is slow and the film should be twenty minutes shorter. The Mate Matisic's music is OK but there is too much music in the film. 5 of 10
