During the war in Bosnia, two childhood friends eventually become enemies, as the tragic and devastating circumstances of the war put them on the opposite sides and expose the most gruesome and cruel aspects of the human nature.
Lemi and Kiza are two brothers who have to bring their dead grandfather from Belgrade to Vrsac, and having spent all their money, they decide to smuggle the body by train. They dress the grandfather and put the body on the train and tell everyone that he is sleeping. After Lemi and Kiza go to drink in the dining car, a drug dealer Limeni fearing police, inserts a drug package in the grandfather's pocket. The train suddenly brakes and a case falls directly on grandfather's head. Other passengers, thinking that it killed him, frenetically throw his body out of the window, under the pretext that the grandfather got up and walked out. Then a search for the grandfather's body starts, but it will not be easy.Written by
After a less then stellar title opening, this movie picks up right away and takes you on a journey you will forget but at the same time will enjoy tremendously. This movie's closest relative is Weekend at Bernie's, but this Serbian movie takes the concept a few notches higher and is a lot funnier. The film has a pretty lousy English translation, but then again a lot of the Serbian slang can't be translated into English.
The basic plot revolves around a drug dealer Limini (Tin man) who is said to have no heart, and two men Lemi and Kiza who are trying to transport their dead grandfather for burial, until their car breaks down and they end up struggling to get him home onboard a train. This is when these two plots intersect and all hell breaks lose. You won't laugh so hard at the movies in a long time, especially if you speak Serbian, Croatian or anything similar. There are few scenes that will make you cringe but then again a few movies are without those.
Since I don't want to spoil the plot any further all I can say is bring an extra diaper and enjoy.
