Storyline

A bus and a truck are moving towards each other along a two-way traffic highway on a rainy day. At the very beginning we learn that a reckless driver of another car will cause them to collide while trying to pass the bus; we even learn what seats will spell doom for their occupants. The rest of the movie follows two streams of events on the bus and on the truck, getting us to know and like a wide variety of characters, wondering which ones will end up being casualties and holding breath for our favourites. The epilogue brings some more surprises... Written by Anonymous

H-10 and a perfect ten too
15 November 1999 | by DabacTSPSee all my reviews

This is absolutely one of the greatest Croatian movies and there's no doubt about it. It doesn't slave to any politics, any specific time, any commercialism and nothing of that kind. But this movie achieves to play with the clichees and functionally use them, to show real-blood characters, to maintain the tempo and to build suspense. We need more master pieces like this for 40 years now (except 'Tko pjeva zlo ne misli' and a few other films)
