Brilliant, must see movie!
28 November 2019 | by papatazaSee all my reviews

One of the best Croatian movies of all time!

Really good screenplay, acting and camera. A great portrayal of Croatian capital- Zagreb during the WWII given through an intriguing story about a father who escaped from the train taking him to almost certain death in Nazi concentration-camp just to find his son (already indoctrinated by Nazis while he was imprisoned). A war movie not like any other, showing all the horrors of the war through family drama and undermined personal relationships between people who were friend before the war started.

Great director-Branko Bauer, esthetic Cinematography by Branko Blazina and good Production by a team including a later to be well know - Branko Lustig should be more than a good reason to see this movie
