An entertaining story about love in the scenery of the first day of Civil war in ex-Yugoslavia
I had the honor to see this movie on the screening for friends and colleagues before the actual premiere. Although I am not a fan of this kind of movies so typical for our production (movies like `Lepa sela lepo gore', `Rane' and Kusturica's movies) I liked it very much. It must be because it is mainly a love story and the scenery is the first day (June 1991.) of the civil war in ex Yugoslavia. The main character is Ratko (played by Srdjan Todorovic), an ex con, from some Bosnian `never go there' place. His most important characteristic is that he is a daltonist, whish gives him, in a symbolic way, ability to see things differently then `majority around him' (that is also an explanation of the movie title). On the beginning of the movie Ratko will meet a city girl (played by Slovenian actress Aleksandra Balmazovic), who is totally different person then him. On their strange voyage they will fall in love with each other and find the way to beat all differences.
My compliments to all the crew led by Srdjan Zika Todorovic. Bogdan Diklic is phenomenal as always in a great episode role. The director Srdjan Koljevic is better known for his screenplays for movies: `Strsljen', `Kazi zasto me ostavi', `Ubistvo sa predumisljajem', `Normalni ljudi', `Nebeska udica', `Natasa'. This is his first time to be in the director's seat. Director of photography Goran Volarevic is also a debutant. My compliments to both of them.
