Trivia

When the producers could only pay him £10-15,000 for his role in the film of his father-in-law Vrdoljak, Goran Visnjic refused to receive any payment. In return, he became one of the producers of the film so he owns a part of the rights for the film. See more »

Great plot, OK actors, only that I expected more...
28 March 2005 | by ericaleerhsenfanSee all my reviews

Great director. Antun Vrdoljak showed to us that not only he can make a spectacular, also that he can present the true horror in Croatia. Good plot, good actors (G.Visnjic and G.Navojec were great!) But I wanted something else. I don't know what, but I expected more(I don't say the film wasn't bad, in fact, it was excellent), but I just thought it will show something else. Because the story is going to fast, you can't know what will happen in the next moment, and things are happening in every moment. But I liked the film, enjoyed the series, loved the plot, the actors, the director.... Looking it in a perspective way, this film was a true story about the horrible things that happened in Croatia). So, if you're interested in watching this film, I truly recommended it!
