The film was shot in pre-war Yugoslavia during the summer of 1988. As editing neared completion civil war tore apart the region and much of the footage was lost. In 1996, after a five-year search, all of the lost footage was found and returned to producer Andjelo Arandjelovic, who worked on getting a distribution deal for the film, before it ended up getting released direct-to-video.

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 »
This is a wannabe "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble," but Travolta did a much better job than Brad Pitt in that role.
I'm a big Pitt fan, but he's really lame in this one. When he's wearing the mask, he is very melodramatic. Maybe the director told him to exaggerate his voice, since he does not have the benefit of facial expressions. Whatever the reason, it doesn't work.
The sad thing is, Pitt's performance is probably the best in the movie. The other actors are even worse.
The whole film has a B-movie feel. For example, there's a fight scene where a guy is knocked out by a slap to the face.
