Synopsis

Four very different people live in the same building but avoid each other because of differences in how they live their lives, what they believe in, and where they come from. They would probably never exchange a word, but misfortune pushes them towards each other. Their lives entangle in ways that profoundly challenge deep-held beliefs and prejudices surrounding material status, sexual orientation, nationality and religion. Slowly, and even painfully, they begin to open up to each other and recognize the essential humanity each of them possesses.

    Superb drama with comic elements.

    The only reason I didn’t give it 10 stars is because I’m so sick and
    tired of films that deal with xenophobia, homophobia, Ustaše and
    Chetniks, Croats and Serbs that I wanna puke!

    THAT BEING SAID, this is one of the best Croatian films I have seen in
    a loooong time.

    Characters and story do seem a bit cliché at first, but the excellent
    acting and story progression take it to another level. The acting is
    amazing on so many levels, Ksenija Marinković and Dejan Aćimović are
    great at portraying middle age working class couple, but Nebojša
    Glogovac should win like an Oscar or something! He went through
    multiple transformations, from the inside and outside, and both like an
    actor and as a character. He does this with such an ease that I think
    he is the best actor of his generation in the entire ex-Yu area.

    On the level of screenplay structure and writing the film is close to
    perfection. There is no redundant information , unnecessary dialog or
    action, every element is driven by the vision of the whole picture. In
    short Ante Tomić nailed it.

    The director Rajko Grlić is not imposing with his style, there is no
    sign of some outside ego that is messing up the natural flow and rhythm
    of the film. Obviously the guy is a master and very at ease with what’s
    he doing.

    Finally, maybe this film is not for everybody’s taste, but I think
    everybody should at least try it. It brings out sadness and then in an
    unexpected moment turns it into a smile, sometimes even a laughter.
    That is something that surprised me and drew me in completely.

    A solid drama with elements of dark mystery

    These types of movie are pretty rare from the Balkans, they actually
    show the dark truth that everything is not how we imagined it, and that
    many things are lost to us. The Constitution of Republic of Croatia is
    film which just shows how the Croatian society looks at thing openly,
    and how they do it in the shadows. A homosexual man who adores
    Independent State of Croatia and a mixed-marriage who believe that
    people are people are at the main prime of these story. In short a
    combination of hypocrisy and nationalism……what can be better then
    this!
