Trivia

The film is based on a popular play by Dusan Kovacevic, which was enacted in Belgrade in the early 1970s. The play was originally set in 1972, but Kovacevic decided to move the story of the movie to the 1930s, to get a darker, "gangster" feel, more suitable to its dark comedy. See more »

Goofs

"Prica jednog dana" is not shown in its real order while playing in Djenka's theater - it cuts from the opening credit sequence directly to the song sequence which is at the very end of the film. See more »

All time greatest
10 July 2009 | by mahoonaSee all my reviews

With no hard feelings, because there are many great films in the history, but this one should be absolute No.1 Although I regret almost everyday for I was born in this part of Europe, I am blessed to be a native speaker, so I can enjoy movies like this completely. I watched this masterpiece more than 300 times. Characters from this movie are the true heroes in all ex-Yu countries, scenes and comments from this movie you can see in everyday life, on TV, hear on radio stations, because each and every sentence from this movie became legendary. Thanks to all the legends who made this movie, hope they rest in peace, cause unfortunately most of them passed away.... I am not sure when we will have a bunch of such extraordinary actors again...
