excellent comedy
1 April 1999 | by Misa-6See all my reviews

This film is one of my favorites. One of the best comedies I have ever seen. Problem is that it is very hard to recognize this kind of humor for those who are not familiar with Yugoslavian way of living. Anyway, I am sure that everybody would enjoy this movie about person who still lives in `68 - year of student`s revolution.
