Till recently an University professor, a bohemian writer, a member of Belgrade's intellectual circles and a passionate opponent of the Milosevic's regime, Teja is today a manager of a big publishing house. One day a strange visitor comes uninvited to his office, carrying a big suitcase. That man is Luka, a former agent of the Serbian Security Service, now a taxi driver.

Emotional for all of those who have lived in Serbia in the 90's
He who didn't cry sever times during the movie and after it, was not in Serbia in the 90's. Wonderful movie, it brings back the memories, all those futile battles that were suppose to mean something for a better future but didn't. Wonderful performances by both Todorovic and Lecic. If Lecic was an USA actor I am sure he would be world wide famous. One his other masterpiece I remember is "Three Tickets to Hollywood", but in my opinion he didn't shoot enough of the good movies. Serbian cinematography is too small for such great actors. But even if you are a foreigner, you will like the movie. Plot and events that where happening in the Serbia during the movie are well explained so you will be able to figure everything out. I recommend it to anyone. If I have to put a genre on it, I would say that this is a brilliant dark historical drama with a few hilarious jokes that make the movie easier to watch.
