You have to love this film!
19 November 2014 | by petarmaticSee all my reviews

I was waiting for a long time for a cute film with a humor coming from Serbia. I am glad that it finally came along.

First, plot is very cute and it will be endorsed by many. It is for the people to like it, and they probably will. The movie theater in Cinema City was sold out, and it will probably be for weeks to come.

Acting is excellent. Especially I always liked acting performed by Bjelogrlic and Karanovic and they are excellent again.

I strongly recommend this film. Two thumbs up! I especially liked one song which they played in the film. It is probably one of the best Yugoslav partisan songs ever composed. I hope youtube will not be angry if I borrow the link for you to listen.
