This is actually the TV film Nocturno 1974, which was transferred to 35mm tape and distributed in film theatres under the title Noć poslije smrti in 1983. Some critics liked it even though the film’s play with fantastic motifs is often times quite pretentious. The film’s strong cast is undoubtedly its best feature.
Screening permit: from April 14, 1983
