great croatian movie
13 March 2000 | by dperiskicSee all my reviews

This movie is about Dora Pejacevic, Croatian female music composer, but what's interesting is that this is not biographical movie, but the movie about emotions, love, hate and Croatia in 19th century. Rade Serbedjija is fantastic in the role of strange and funny drunk who influenced Dora Pejacevic's life. Alma Prica is one of the best Croatian actress and in this film that's visible. The lack of money for production prevents me to give this film even more than 8.
