Another friend of his is a treasury guard in a bank governed by a shady lady known as "Serbian mother", notorious for cheating the thousands of creditors. The couple plans to rob the bank and run away to a remote sunny island with palms. Written by Mario

Decent enough, I guess...
6 July 2002 | by Decko_koji_obecavaSee all my reviews

Rasa Andric's "Tri palme..." isn't going to stay in your head long after you're through with it. Like a quick fix lemonade that hits the spot when you're thirsty for something that goes down easy, it will satisfy you for a time and quickly be out of your system. In the long run it just opened my appetite for something more hearty and substantial.

Phrase "so-so" was invented with this film in mind.

Plot is a pretty straight-forward exercise seen in many pictures, but placed in a year 1993 Belgrade amid galloping inflation, monetary chaos and social effects of the war being fought just 200km away - a setting that basically drives the plot as characters are forced to do things they normally wouldn't even take into consideration.

So with a little romance, some bank robbery, a pinch of semi-originality and a steady dose of predictability, we have a marginal recommendation from me.

P.S. It's better than Andric's second movie "Munje!".
