Another great film from Darko Lungulov
13 June 2020 | by lynnchristiaSee all my reviews

Loved this film. So funny ! - But I cried too. Plus beautiful directing and amazing locations. The actors were so good. I felt transported. It felt real. IMO there were a couple poignant moments of sadness, but dont want to share too much. But mostly, I think it was hilarious ! Those actors are amazing. The style of the film making and the humor is beautiful, down to earth, funny and very touching. Darko Lungulov is one of the best film makers out there today.
