Storyline

This comedy of the absurd is set in the Nazi puppet Independent State of Croatia (NDH) during World War II. The hero, Ljiljan is a young peasant poet who joins the Partisan movement just before it falls apart, abandoned by its leader Tito. The last remaining hope for resisting Nazism is to assassinate Hitler. Ljiljan's task is to write a song that will allow his Partisan band to infiltrate the inner sanctum of the SS - by entering an SS talent show. If they win the competition, they will be invited to perform before Hitler and the NDH's high command. This is a satirical coming-of-age tale with a difference, capturing the craziness, comedy and horror of war in the Balkans.

A group of young partisans plans an assassination of Hitler
9 February 2016 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

This movie is packed with little jokes, it reminds me on old Monty Python films. It may have a strong local focus, so all the jokes may not be so easily understandable to public outside South-East Europe, although I think that everyone will laugh at "Lol". The film counts on younger public, but was fun for me, and I am 54.

Characters are of a comic book style, do not expect a usual comedy, this film reminds on a video game, and needs full attention, so that all little details can be caught.

For all youngsters - highly recommended, for others - also, if they still are young inside.
