I can not remember who recommended this to me, and that's good thing cause revenge would be cruel. Movie is boring, needless, lousy made and even naked Neda Arneric can't improve impressions. Story could be told in 20-30 minutes and with better directing it maybe could be decent movie, cause basic idea is good. But when you slubber that idea and stretch it to 2 hours result is agonizing boredom. Something like this you can find only in YU cinematography. We do not have OK movies. We have masterpieces like "Maratonci trce pocasni krug" i "Ko to tamo peva" drowned in heap of nonsense like this one. And then, after decomposition of YU, new wave of movies comes, movies that are modern and much better produced, more westward, but even if they are not boring like before, they are equally needless. Respect to exceptions like "Lepa sela" and few more. All in all, I will definitely give up on domestic cinematography, except if particular movie is recommended by at least dozen people I trust.
