This is the first feature film after Tomislav Radić’s Živa istina that openly draws from Jean-Luc Godard’s poetics, which were especially popular near the end of the 1990s, particularly among American independent filmmakers. Mondo Bobo is a stylistically fresh film, but its narrative and character development are somewhat lacking. In fact, it could easily be looked upon as a sketch for a more fully realized film. However, at the Pula film festival it won the Golden Arenas for the best director, male actor, set design and editing. It was also popular in some international film festivals (it won the Don Quixote award at the Cottbus film festival), as well as among Croatian film critics who praised it as an independent production that followed international film trends.
