After divorce, the former partners started new families. The older son, the teenage Zoran, remained living with his father and his new attractive wife, who then gave birth to the little girl Đurica. The younger son, 10-year-old Đuro, stayed with his mother, who married a flutist and gave birth to another son, Draško. This is the plot of the film hit directed back in 1968 by Kreško Golik. Zoran is played by the debutant Igor Galo, the parents by the legendary Mia Oremović and Relja Bašić, and Đuro by the Latino singer Davor Radolfi, a 12-year-old at that time, chosen at an audition among 200 kids. One of the most popular films by Krešo Golik, the director focused on ‘little’ people, and inspired by the French New Wave. This brilliant comedy is in fact a serious tale of a marital crisis of former partners told in a simple and immediate manner, with plenty of humour and sympathy for the characters.
