The film is excellent in the moments of Bela-Slava relations, but I agree with previous viewer that Slava's character is neglected. The movie should be called '100 minutes of Bela'. My opinion is that director Matanic wanted to put the flashlight on Miki Manojlovic (in the role of Bela), one of the best character actors around. When he got him for the movie, he seized every second of him, so Sanja Vejnovic (Slava) naturally falls behind. Vili Matula is brilliant as always. Some of the cut-off scenes on DVD are better than the scenes in the movie and it's a pity they didn't remain in the film, especially the scene where Bela and Slava break things together. I loved the scenes where director shows the men shoes same on every foot in town, but was it really necessary to explain it later with Bela's voice over which guide us through the film? The movie is not bad at all, but it feels too much like some Corto Maltese's trip to Central Europe so if you're the fan of the comic, you'll enjoy it.
