Great war movie
This movie is very interesting especially because it is made in 1969. Veljko Bulajic made a very good job, with international cast even I don't like Bulajic and his movies very much. Now we have to expect his new movie "Sarajevo" without Abdulah Sidran who had to work on a screenplay. I think that he should not direct that movie. "Bitka na Neretvi" is great movie, with special effects that are better than 90% in new movies. But it was the old time in old Yugoslavia, when everything was possible even the great movies such is this. If you haven't watched it, you should, because you will be satisfied.
