| A hidden gem.
A hidden gem of Yugoslav and Croatian cinema. A masterpiece melodrama and a love story about two handicapped people, both victims of WWII. Shortly after the WWII, an one-legged chief engineer at the construction of hydroelectric power plant, and a war veteran, meets a blind girl in a mountain sanatorium of Ophthalmology, during winter. She's waiting for a surgery that can restore her eyesight. Soon, the two fall in love with each other, but he feels unpleasant because of his handicap she's not yet aware of... The movie was selected to be shown in the official program of the Venice film festival. Filmed in the idyllic landscape, with sophisticated script, careful framing... "Only people" is a film that stands apart with its aesthetic, from other Yugoslav films of that period, and if the actors wouldn't speak Croatian language, it could easily be mistaken for a classical Hollywood achievement of 1950-ies.
