The first of Bauer’s many later escapades outside of Croatian film, Tri Ane is one of the best and most influential films by Branko Bauer. The film is naturalistic, with a harsh characterization and atmosphere. It seems to be a premature overture to Yugoslav and especially the Serbian Black Wave. At the time of its production the critics were quite unfavorable toward it, but from today’s perspective this road film, which can be compared with Antonioni’s Krik was made a year before, undoubtedly holds one of the most important places in the history of Yugoslav film. The most convincing characteristic of this film is Bauers’s contact with elements of modernist poetics.
