Storyline

Stipan is a policeman who comes to small Adriatic island off the Croatian coast in order to investigate reported strange phenomena that had frightened the whole population. At first, nobody wants to co-operate with him, but he finally finds that the island is being allegedly haunted by the ghost of Josip Broz Tito, Communist leader of former Yugoslavia. For Luka, the mayor, this is the opportunity to turn entire island into Tito-themed amusement park. Tito's WW2 veterans, on the other hand, don't believe in ghosts; for them, the apparition is actually Tito himself, who had returned in order to lead them into a new revolution which would restore Communism.

GREAT COMEDY
21 February 2000 | by direhardSee all my reviews

This is great comedy, especially because it is one of the best movies made in Croatia since 1990. The director was leading the actors very carefully and very surely, so there was very few mistakes, but, in my opinion, the most responsible for this movie was the director's father, Ivo. He is one of the best screenwriters in ex-Yugoslavia, and now in Croatia.

Vinko should continue on this way, because it seems that he has to show much more. P.S. On 19. February 2000, Vinko received an award in Berlin, but I don't know what was award. Congratulation, just keep on doing job that you do best, directing.
