One scene required an urban traffic jam. In 1960, there were few cars in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. In order to shoot this scene, they had to divert traffic in the city into the main street, to generate impression of a jam. By today's standards, the traffic in the scene still moves very well. In real life, since the seventies, this street has been jammed with cars most of the time. See more »
When I first saw this movie, I was instantly madly in love with beautiful 18 yrs old actress Beba Loncar. Naturally, I was not alone. The entire Yugoslav male population of the early sixties was also enchanted by her. The film was full of good music, mostly composed by famous composer Darko Kraljic and performed by excellent actor/singer Djuza Stojiljkovic and some contemporary very popular singers, such as Ivo Robic, Lola Novakovic, Gaby Novak and the world class vocal jazz quartet of the trumpet player Predrag Ivanovic. Western flavor was skillfully intermixed with Serbian humor, and the film was completely devoid of any politics. In 2010 the film, digitally remastered, was shown at the Sopot Film Festival and the guest of honor was Beba Loncar, looking stunning even in her late sixties.
The film has kept its freshness and is popular even in younger generations. It is always a pleasure to watch.
