This was the last film in the golden period of Bauer’s film opus. Martin u oblacima has a well developed narrative, characters and dramaturgy and successfully joins social melodrama with comedy. Bauer’s great feeling for ambience and profiling colorful characters reaches its peak in this film. The actors are all outstanding as well. This film was very popular at the time of its premiere.
