This is not a drama, unless you have no sense of humour.
26 January 2015 | by fedor8See all my reviews

This is an easy-going, enjoyable comedy, not a drama as is mistakenly labeled on this site. Samardzic and Stimac make a great pair; there is chemistry between them, solid and amusing dialogue, and also interesting situations. One of Mihic's better scripts, partly because a lot of his typically sentimental writing isn't in this. Besides, he seems to have made an effort this time around, whereas some of his movies are rushed jobs done without much interest.

Samardzic plays an honest, cheerful, likable ex-boxer whose integrity gets in the way of his success outside the ring. It is a typical role for Ljubisa, and the sort he plays with great ease and brilliance. From the start, we find out that he plays a character who is very law-abiding which makes him almost fictitious in the Balkans. Through a chance meeting (an amusing one) he gets to know a young, adventurous thief (Stimac) whom he soon decided to take under his wing, i.e. assumes the role of his mentor, trying to put him on the straight and narrow. However, things don't quite work out as he'd planned.
