Storyline

Ante and Dusko are two Dream Team players. Besides being a Croat and a Serb who fought on opposite sides in the war, both used to be volleyball players. Today, they live normal lives, one in a remote craggy region, the other in Banja Luka. There is little chance of them ever meeting again. The International War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague has indicted Colonel Skoko, a hero to some, a criminal to the others. The two main witnesses to his defense, Mato and Joso, have disappeared without a trace. Skoko's sponsor from the intelligence circles, Antisa, wants to find two men resembling Mato and Joso, to impersonate them before the Hague investigators, and hopefully bring down the indictments. Naturally, the two men he finds are none other than our heroes, Ante and Dusko Written by Anonymous

Not Bad...
24 July 2006 | by buigerSee all my reviews

Not bad, but nothing out of the ordinary either. I can understand how eclectic western commentators can get excited about such movies, thinking that they are much 'deeper' than what they actually are, but this is only because they have no knowledge whatsoever of what the reality on the ground in the Balkans is (a unique mixture of love, hate and indifference). To make a film like this is rather easy for someone who lives there, understands the people, to simply make a movie depicting the current reality, things that actually happen, the way people really are. The one thing the film does with a certain effectiveness is a parody of the War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague, which is well deserved, since it serves no other purpose but to appease the Wests' dirty conscience (and public opinion) as well as to help achieve further political goals that the mostly European Foreign Offices have set for themselves (no wonder the US wants to have nothing to do with it...).

The film can essentially be divided into three parts. The beginning which was rather promising, the intermediate part which was basically boring, and the ending which saved the movie from being a total flop. This because it was smart, funny, and above all, totally unexpected. The acting was very good by both leads. The script, soundtrack and cinematography could have been much better though...
