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
Although I'm not a fan of many Croatian comedies (as a Croatian myself), in this one I found myself laughing out loud on few occasions.
This movie is a parody of many things. First of all, it mocks low budget movies, superheroes and zombies, because the latter two are quite common in modern age movies. Second, it mocks the Balkan mentality which is present in all former Yugoslavian countries, along with their common history and relations, and this is the main punch-line of the movie. So if you are a foreigner (and by that I mean if you're not from one of the former Yugoslavian countries) you probably won't get many of the jokes.
The movie is simple, funny, and most importantly different from many other Croatian comedies, which is probably why the audience liked it so much.
It's a must watch for everyone living in Balkan region.
