Country of production:
Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia (Socialist Republic of Croatia/Socialist Republic of Serbia)
Živorad Tomić, Nebojša Pajkić
This debut feature film by Tomić is a finely directed atmospheric thriller-drama with revenge as its theme. The film lacks a well-developed approach to the love triangle situation, and the characters do not have fully realized personalities. Nevertheless, with this film, Tomić joined Zoran Tadić and Dejan Šorak in their creation of the Croatian genre film of the 1980s.
