Croatia, seven years after bankruptcy. There is a fight going on in the world - water has become more precious than oil. In order to get hold of it, the powerful are ready to start wars, conquer, destroy, and even plant a zombie-virus. Mico, a bon viveur from Zagreb, whose daily routine includes massage parlours, restaurants and cinemas, where he watches a movie series featuring his favorite actress Franka Anic, is caught completely off guard by the zombie-epidemics. Nevertheless, he boldly embarks on an Odyssey accompanied by his movie heroine, with one highly unattainable, goal: to survive.Written by
This movie was already in cinemas half a year ago and i had a hard time to find
it somewhere to have a look at, luckily zagrebs "luda kuca" was showing it on a saturday evening for one-time only and so i went to watch it.
Using the backdrop of a zombie-apocalypse the movie is mocking everything that relates to the current state of the regions of the former yugoslavia and its relations to each other andit does it good enough to be actually funny which seems not to be a given in most croatians comedy-movies, at the same time thats the biggest problem of the movie, foreigners wont relate to it because these are mostly inside-jokes.
Kresimir Mikic is awesome and has become one of my favourite croatian actors, i really wished croatian cinema would make movies that doesnt target only domestic audiences, because it certainly has enough good actors but lacks the screenwriters for it.
So if you are from the balkans and like domestic comedies this one is worth a watch compared to what else croatian cinema has to offer, foreigners should take a pass and rather watch "Shaun of the Dead" or "Zombieland" which this movie doesnt come close.
