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 »

A man with no future & a woman with a past
13 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this last month at the 2010 Palm Springs International Film Festival and of the 23 films I saw there I would put this in my top three. There has been a lot of films coming out of Croatia & Serbia with the war there as the theme and yes. This is one of those but it's smart balance of dark comedy and heavy drama in a well paced interesting story makes for a wonderful film experience. Martin (Ivan Herceg) is a former military sniper turned private investigator and he enlists the help of a famous star in the Serbian porn industry Djuro (Pedrag Vusovic) to help him find Djuro's co-star in his most famous film, the mysterious and intriguing Desa (Nada Sargin). Desa is working as a hooker for a powerful and sinister pimp called Kriminala (Drazen Kuhn). Martin buys Desa from Kriminalac and takes her from Belgrade back to Zagrib and his reasons as well as his past and hers began to unfold in flashback. Matin unwittingly starts to fall for Desa and she for him. Excellent direction from writer/director Vinko Bresan who co-wrote the script with Mate Matisic and Franjo Mogus. Mogus also doubles as the film's cinematographer with Matisic providing the music score and both wonderfully done. A great look from art director Mario Vezic really gives this film a rich appearance. A great cast and a great combination of filmmakers make this worth seeing. I would give this a 9.5 out of 10 and highly recommend it.
