Beware...this is crap
11 April 2001 | by dmihicSee all my reviews

Steer clear of this movie. It's god awful. Although it has a number of excellent Yugoslavian actors, they can't even save this unorganized and plotless mess. Anyone who tries to convince people to watch this movie is delusional.

The movie is about a son going to visit his ex-Commie dad who has relocated to Greece. The problem with the film is that the son goes to Greece but you have no real clue to why he does or what ensues for the majority of the film after. Absolutely clueless.
