Storyline

The film narrates a tormented love story between one of the most famous poets of Serbian literature, Laza Kostic, renowned for his sublime poetic puns and word coining and an enchanting young girl by the name of Lenka Dundjerski, an educated and refined daughter of a landowner Lazar Dundjerski. Standing in the way of their love is the insurmountable age gap between the two, as Kostic is 29 years older than his beloved one. The affair inspired one of the most sophisticated and tender love poems of the time, an utmost expression of yearning, in which the poet''s unflinching devotion is linked to his admiration for a Venice basilisk by the name of Santa Maria della Salute. Written by Marija Montinaro-Barjaktarovic

Not bad but not good as expected
13 January 2017 | by dufko86-694-705455See all my reviews

First of all - this is film created from TV series, so it's not movie as many expected it is. Too many things are missing, especially in the beginning, probably those scenes are going to be included in the TV series. Also, there are some goofs which are so clear when you watch on big screen in cinema. Scenes in the end with Santa Maria Della Salute church exterior are so amateur that they look as that they are created with some home video editing software. Also scenes with Laza dreaming of Lenka are ridiculous how they look like. Suma sum-arum - not bad for TV series but definitely not for cinema. Music is excellent, acting is very good, story not bad, beside it's not 100% historically accurate. I gave rating mark 7 as some general impression but if I would have to rate it strictly as cinema movie impression it would be about 3...
