Unpretentious, funny, relaxing...
The producers of the Three Palms for Two Punks and a Babe (Tri palme za dve bitange i ribicu) had undoubtedly a very low budget for their film. It was the only totally independent production in Yugoslavia in 1998. Having that in mind and all other technical difficulties they had, the crew made a very good job. Especially the film director Radivoje Andric, concerning the fact that this was his first feature.
It is a story about hyper-inflation in Belgrade in 1993. A monthly inflation of 313 million per cent is reason enough for not thinking about tomorrow. In all that madness, when even condoms are washed and dried, three young people try to survive, each in their own way. At one point their destinies meet. They want to rob the bank that is robbing the entire nation!
Unpretentious, funny, relaxing... If you have a chance to see it, don't miss it.
