Zastavas 101 (''stojadin'') were originally police cars during 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, but all four models seen in the movie (three standard police and one civilian, used by the Chief Inspector), are versions from mid 1980s (movie depicts events from 1979.). Like Zastava 1300/1500, models were repainted, again with wrong position and size of the inscription ''MILICIJA''. See more »
I really enjoyed this film. I wasn't judging this movie as I would a Hollywood project. It surpasses nearly all of them anyway because it's got soul. People who were there give recounts of their own experiences and perspectives, between the recreations which were very well done. The film has a real 70's feel to it, so masterfully portrayed it's tougher to tell the difference in eras between the actual clips and the recreations, than it is to tell the difference between the recreations and the interviews. If the interviews were not shot in modern crispness, you wouldn't be able to tell this movie wasn't actually from the era of the phantom.
The story of the phantom and his effect on the people, especially during a time of tyranny in a police state is inspiring, and even some of the police who were the younger officers at the time admit to secretly admiring him.
I'm sure most people will like it, only those who try not to won't.
