| ONE OF THE BEST...
...movies coming from Serbia in the nineties. Ljubisa Samardzic as director and experienced cast with serbian movie star Dragan Bjelogrlic at the head. And a presence of the war included.

Although filled with small time jokes, emotions, family relations, there is a strong presence of resignation, which finally contributes to sad endings and family tragedies.

But what did you expect? A Hollywood, romance "happy-ending". An American way of breakthrough. Heroes. There are no heroes here. Just a bunch of people stuck in the early thirties between their dreams and NATO bombings, collapsed buildings, tense family relations and small time pleasures.

The leading actor Kaja (Nebojsa Glogovac) was great in presenting above mentioned guys. Likable character with his "champions philosophy" (What it takes to be a champion? To go out on the field when it's the hardest and...won.), which didn't helped him. Sadly he uses his philosophy it at the end and...lose. I could mention the whole cast, but I wont. They were great. No sense of acting here, it's like they already been through that.

I guess that this is one of the reasons, why Serbians made the best war time movies in the Balkan. Rane, Lepa Sela Lepo Gore, and Nebeska udica are the proof. The last one is filled with emotions. Beware.
