One song a day takes mischief away (Tko pjeva zlo ne misli)

Croatia 1970

Details imdb

Seen 12 June 2012

A week of love, attraction and songs

IMDB 7.8/10
This is a very quaint film but I enjoyed it as I've never seen a Croatian film. The songs and lyrics had a nostalgic feel of innocent times. The acting is stilted but complements the overall mood of the film. A fun watch. I'll give this a 7.0/10

My impressions:

A compound of families
Ordinary folks and neighbours

Each day seem a routine
Until an outing
Brings a stranger

The man has eyes for the lady
Tries his best to be closer
Alas the lady is married
But he still tries
Persistent, not giving up

Each ensuing day
Sees the relationship
Going through cycles

In between, the songs
Mirror the situation
The impossible

It can never happen
The couple will be together
The man will have to find another

But will he
