A comedy about two people with different world-views, from different places, whose fate, with the help from a bull Garonja (a name given to the black bulls in villages of Croatia), intertwine. Ante (Goran Bogdan) is a peasant from Dalmatian hinterland, a son of an bull fights organizer, and skilled insurance salesman. He is known by his powers of persuasion. At the voting for the Law for animal protection, biggest controversy is considering bull fights. Sonja (Judita Frankovic) is from Zagreb, an inveterate activist fighting for animal rights. In Dalmatian hinterland nobody can understand her attitude. They conclude that Sonja, regardless of the declared intense love of animals, would not dare stand in front of a bull. About Sonja and Anthony , the central pair who in his romantic comedy game going a little farther - a little back, a series of actions is carried out in the style of a wild untamed satire at the expense of local "yellow" media and important institutions such as the ...

The film crew intended to buy the bull Garonja from the owner, and take him to the movie premier, but the owner sold him earlier, allegedly because he broke his leg, so the poor bull probably ended up in the meat industry. See more »
The film has a very good picture quality, but the sound - it's a completely different story, sound spoils the experience of each second of the movie.
The story begins interestingly, continues a little bit off-road, but at the middle of the storyline story is lost on a off-road rally race - goes to something that has nothing to do with either Sonja or with the bull, but with inconsistent characters who are trying to complement the duration of the movie.
The film offers a couple of interesting characters, such as the butcher, but most of them are poorly characterized.
As for the miser humor in the film: it's cheap and inadequate. Watching Sonja and the bull is more like watching a social drama with elements of comedy, than watching a comedy. In fact, humor appears as much as unnecessary nudity.
In short, the film offers a one-time "entertainment" for a Sunday afternoon.
Note to parents: keep in mind that the film contains EXPLICIT CONTENT, so first watch the movie by yourselves in order to assess how much the movie could be interesting to your children.
