Harley Jane Kozak,
The film was shot in Yugoslavia during the summer of 1988. As editing neared completion civil war tore apart the region and much of the footage was stored in Avala films warehouse in Belgrade. In 1996, producer Andjelo Arandjelovic, worked on getting a distribution deal for the film, before it ended up getting released direct-to-video in 1997. See more »
At the end credits no character names are given next to the actors name. Instead the supporting actors are listed under 'Supporting Players' and actors with bit parts are listed under 'Other Players'. See more »
An excellent start for a newcomer and an interesting storyline shot shortly before the war in Yugoslavia
This well shot and well located movie is complimented by an interesting debut by Brad Pitt. Set in 1988 just before the Yugoslavian conflict the story follows the fortunes of Rick (Brad Pitt) in meeting with a young American girl whilst suffering from a potentially fatal skin disease.
Set in a small town on the Adriatic the film is beautifully shot and is worth anyones time and money who appreciate a well made film professionally acted.
Just watch for that part of the film covering the final three days - it is not predictable. On top of all this the history of the film is intriguing - shortly after the film was finished the completed work went missing only to be discovered 6 years later after the Yugoslavian conflict ended in 1996. The Director(check him out) certainly had his work cut out in obtaining distributors for what by then was rated as a poor performance from an established actor.
Especially watch for some close resemblances to Joe Black. The music was good too.
