Slovakia is part of the Schengenarea (joined 2007). A Ukrainian passport holder with a valid visa for Slovakia does not need another visa for any other Schengencountry (Austria). The bordello owner in Bratislava paid a Slovakian policeman for getting a visa in his Ukranian passport (mistake). He speaks Russian, drives a Russian car and holds a Ukrainian passport. He needs no visa if he wants crossing the Slovakian-Austrian border. See more »

A Whimsical Yet Marvelous One
2 December 2012 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

This is the real dark comedy. The only one movie where I can laugh in the moment that I should have sad or cry. really tricky and play our emotions, with unpredictable ending! If you think you would never laugh in the middle of saddest moment or ironic circumstances, you probably wrong. this movie proved the opposite, where laugh can find in the most ironic moment! this story is about a debt collector who must confiscate the belonging of debtor, in this case i car. When the protagonist sick of this job and decided to quick, his boss asked him to do the last job to take the car from Mr. A (i forget the name, lets say that's his name), in a country motel. none workers at the motel admitted they know Mr. A, but the protagonist said, he saw his car, so there is no way he's not here, but the he find out the car was missing. And, from that moment the story begin. Be ready experienced the weirdo script without confusing you. never thought before i will love this kind of movie. highly recommended for those who want taste new flavor of film. Happy watching! :D
