Storyline

The act of a woman with a broken nose, who suddenly jumps out of a taxi and throws herself off the bridge in Belgrade, connects the lives of three witnesses. The suicide attempt becomes the existential catalyst to the misanthropist taxi-driver Gavrilo who tries to avoid any kind of emotional commitment, the school teacher Anica, stubbornly rejecting the attentions of one of her students, and the wacky pharmacist Biljana, who realizes that the man she's about to marry isn't The One. Each of them bears a wound from the past, a trauma they haven't yet found the courage to face. And it's here on the bridge, linking the old city with New Belgrade, that their road to recovery begins. Interwoven story becomes gently optimistic in its philosophy, yet remains credible throughout, deeply rooted in the reality and human nature. Written by Anonymus

Not a masterpiece, but should be seen
24 December 2010 | by sobotSee all my reviews

This is another movie from Srđan Koljević, who made "Sivi kamion crvene boje" ("The Red Colored Grey Truck"), and was the writer of "Klopka", "Nataša", "Sky Hook"... He gathered a very fine team of actors, lead by Nebojša Glogovac.

The movie is part drama, part comedy. Glogovac and Jasna Žalica are in charge of the laughs, with their Bosnian speech, and with numerous stings among them.

There are three main stories, all about love and all interesting. They intertwine, perhaps a bit too much for my taste. On the other hand, I didn't find too many movie patterns used, so I enjoyed it all the way.

The main question raised is: should a man make emotional ties in the world where everything can easily crush to pieces. And, even though not all three stories have happy endings, I feel that the message is optimistic, for all the characters in the movie.
