Storyline

A small border post on the Yugoslav-Albanian border in the spring of 1987. Frustrated and always drunk, lieutenant Pasic feels a strange pain in his groins. He seeks help from the only doctor among the soldiers, Sinisa, who diagnoses a sexually transmitted disease. Not wishing his wife to know about it and trying to find excuses not to go home, he declares a state of emergency, claiming that the Albanian army is preparing an attack against Yugoslavia. A joke transforms into war hysteria: soldiers dig trenches, Pasic grows wilder as the days go by, Sinisa embarks on a dangerous liaison, and his best friend Ljuba decides to leave the army. The situation slowly runs out of control... Written by moviewatcher-serb

Great Movie
30 January 2007 | by jevrejSee all my reviews

This movie is one of my favorite movies. It is a 10 out of 10. Comedy, Drama, Nostalgia, and the multiple plots being introduced throughout the movie. Never mind the other critic, I have shown this movie with English subtitles to over 15 non-Yugoslav friends both male and female and they loved it. I've watched it over ten times, very very funny movie. The best comedy is between the soldier Paunovich and his lieutenant. I recommend this movie to everyone, but especially to the Yugoslav folks who enjoyed their life in the Former Yugoslavia because it will give you a good feeling of being there for 90 minutes. The reason I've watched it over ten times.
