This movie is very, very boring. It's not long (runs only 80+ minutes), but it's extremely slow-paced and uninteresting. The acting is poor, the main character (played by American actor David Thornton) looks like he's bored to death. There's a cameo by the great Cyndi Lauper (Thornton's real life wife). She's in two short scenes, but nothing interesting there - very disappointing. The New York scenes with Branislav Trifunovic are unnecessary for the movie's plot, they are overlong and should have been cut. And one more (very important) thing - Belgrade shown in this movie is not the real Belgrade. Belgrade isn't a perfect city, but it's not a strange dirty place full of weird, crazy people. My hometown is (among other things) a beautiful place and this movie doesn't do it justice. This is a sub par TV movie at the best.
