Srdjan 'Zika' Todorovic,
Originating from Serbia (Ex Yugoslavia), a country with decent cinematographic tradition, I have had a pleasure to see some remarkable pieces of art from this region.
Due to current "silent wave" in our movie industry, I have decided to watch this movie without any special expectations except to have fun and a few laughs for the next 1,5 hours. What a mistake it was! Bitter faces after the movie is a short recap of how entertaining it was.
A hint of idea was noticeable somewhere far behind the surface, but neither the plot, nor humor (something characteristic for our region) was there, leaving the audience to wonder what exactly did they watch.
All actors efforts and a few dozens of curses could not save it for one cent. That pale it was.
Having seen some excellent ratings so far, I have to wonder if we actually watched the same movie!
As a conclusion from a "non-expert", after the movie I had a solid feeling that 1,5h of my life has gone with the wind, leaving me sorry for my decision.
