Storyline

On April 5, 1941, a date Serbs will recognize, men on a country road board Krstic's bus for Belgrade: two Gypsies who occasionally sing about misery, an aging war vet, a Nazi sympathizer, a dapper singer, a consumptive, and a man with a shotgun. Krstic is a world-weary cynic, out for a buck; the driver is his son, the simple, cheerful Misko. En route they pick up a priest and young newlyweds going to the seaside. Along the way, mis-adventure strikes: a flat tire, a rickety bridge, a farmer who's plowed the road, a funeral, two feuding families, an army detail, and a lost wallet slow the bus and expose rifts among the travelers. On April 6, amid rumors of war, they reach Belgrade... Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

One of the greatest films world has never heard about
9 August 1998 | by bbc-2See all my reviews

This brilliant flick about several people traveling to Belgrade just before start of the WW2 in Yugoslavia is probably worth an Oscar or two. It is very profound, intelligent and, above all, funny. Jokes are typically Balkanesque, which makes it even more original in global circuits.
