Quotes

Franjo Safranek: I for one read a book about how humans evolved. It says everything. First, there were fish, and then the fish grew legs, and so on, all up to the human.
Teta Mina: It wouldn't be that book where some Englishman says that a human evolved from a monkey?
Franjo Safranek: The writer I don't remember, but the book had most wonderful covers... with gold-stamping!
Teta Mina: I don't know, so I've heard. But if he's evolved from a monkey, I haven't!

Excellent old school movie !
12 March 2007 | by Skydiver86See all my reviews

This movie reminds me of the "old" days in ex - Yugoslavia. I'm not "Yugoslav nostalgic", because now I'm "just" 30 years old, first time I saw this movie was couple of years ago and it reminds me of the days when I was a kid in my dear old Opatija, Croatia. The time, people, slow life, almost everything was exactly as it was back then when people were in love with each other and having fun together not having fun in front of the TV, Internet, Play stations or else .. This movie shows very good how little we need to be lucky in life .. And this is definitely one of those movies you're lucky to look back here and then. It's similar to Avanti! with Jack Lemmon, another movie that's one of those showing you how to live life @ fullest ..
