Easy to be Forgotten
17 June 2008 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

When you see the name of Zeljko Mitorvic as producer of the film, you can start yourself asking is this movie worth watching. Anyway, besides that fact that brings nothing good, movie itself have couple of good and funny moments, but if you watched ''Mi Nismo Andjeli'', ''Rane'', ''Dve Palme za Bitange i Ribicu'', you will catch all of the ''seen-before'' gags. Storyline is mainly shallow and holes in the story are to much visible, and goal of the film is unfinished and messy. Acting tough, is good, even if Vojin Cetkovic isn't good choice for mob boss, as his character gain more village boy profile than notorious killer and mobster, what you wouldn't say for Marko Zivic as he acts very effective. Considering camera shooting, effects and design, movie can pass, but when you put it all together it's obvious that this is the movie for home-video market, not for theaters and such. Funny for moments, but easy to be forgotten.
