Thought I wold give this one a try. I wish I had not.
The pace of the movie is at fast forward through the whole thing, it snaps from scene to scene in incoherent leaps. The who's who and what's what takes you most of the first hour to get. The last 20 minutes is just a mess, and then its over. There seems to be no point or message, and when the movie ends it just ends, without any real ending. I'm miss context and substance, and I must say, the acting is mediocre at its best.
I could pick and poke at this flick for pages and pages on, but I'll leave it at that.
Unless you are especially interested in Croatian film; give this one a miss, it just ain't worth it!
