Brilliant
6 December 2002 | by marinovicSee all my reviews

This movie is based on a wonderful comedy play set against the backdrop of charming and innocent pre-World War II Zagreb. The film revolves around the main character and heartthrob bachelor Mr. Fulir who is madly in love with another man's wife. In order to keep his true sentiments hidden he pretends to be interested in the wife's best friend and in doing so is forced into friendship with his flame's moronic husband. As the story unfolds Mr. Fulir finds himself in a number of sticky situations and has to use his suave ways to manouver himself out.

I couldn't recommend this film more to any person who is interested in Croatian culture and history. Those familiar with Zagreb will find it especially warming as it strikes a deep sentimental chord amid the city's old streets and antiquated ways. Uzivajte!
