I really have to admit that I have expected more of Branko Djuric in this movie. Branko Djuric was and is a synonym for humor in the "West Balcans", as well as in Slovenia where he moved in the beginning of the War. What he did back in the 80's was a highlight of Yugoslav humor, and that is why I expected more.
Moresover, because almost half of Slovenians went to the cinema to watch this movie, so did I as well, but I was kind of disappointed. The storyline is boring and predictable, the characters are stereotypical, and it isn't all that funny at all. I know that some might say that this movie wasn't supposed to be all about comedy, and that it deals with some kind of stereotypes, but I cannot help thinking that Djuro could have made this film better.
Actually, what I liked the most was the scene in the restaurant, that one was really good, but the rest of the film was pretty uninteresting. Dragan Bjelogrlic as good as always.
I hope the next film that Djuro makes will be better! 6/10
