This film was made as a graduation film by students of the Film School in Belgrade whose headmaster was the director and screenwriter Vjekoslav Afrić. This film is a skillful combination of tension and humor, starring the outstanding Dragomir Felb. Barba Žvane was very well accepted by both critics and audiences so that after his first two films, Slavica and Barba Žvane, thanks to the Partisan-political themes, Afrić became the most prestigious director of contemporary Yugoslav cinema. Extraordinarily bad reactions to his next film, Hoja! Lero!, prohibited Afrić from directing any more films and he devoted his career to leading the Film School in Belgrade.
