A movie made up of highly popular Serbian TV series "Better Life". Head of the Popadic family, Dragisa "Giga" Popadic, organizes a shopping trip to Thessaloniki, Greece, for his co-workers in the company, which are mostly women.
The Gavrilovic family, in the absence of money, must earn it on every possible way. When Tika Shpitz, loudmouth from Stajkovce, come in Belgrade, Gavrilo, head of Gavrilovic family, sees the chance to get money.
The film is very good. It is about the country life in post-war Yugoslavia, ruined school, ex-partisan as a school teacher, captured German officer as a school janitor, there is a love story between the school teacher and the local nurse. There are very good scenes, the acting is superb..
Some of the scenes will make you cry. There is a scene at the local party where Danilo Bata Stojkovic dances with the nurse and remembers his late wife. The scene has Oscar-like qualities...
The comments in the background are by the former pupil in that school which gives additional flair to the film. Must see, even for non-Yugoslavs.
