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 ...

Trivia

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 »

It's a good movie!
24 March 2015 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Personally, I liked the movie very much and would recommend it. It's really one of the best Croatian movies. It's true though that it's not a comedy in the proper sense of the word. It's more like a romantic comedy. In the end it's not about fighting for the animal rights, it's about the love story between two main characters. Still, I think they make a sweet couple. The movie doesn't contain a lot of "obvious" jokes. The jokes are rather subtle (may i use that word to describe it) and I'm not sure whether the foreigners would be able to understand them. The humor in this movie is more about the mentality of the Croatian hinterland rather than about making obvious jokes. To sum up, although there are a lot of movies that are better than Sonja and the Bull, I think most of the viewers should like this movie. The only catch is that you shouldn't expect a "proper" comedy.
