Many, many thanks to my dear friend Mateja for the much improved English subtitles, no idea who made the original English subtitles for this film as I couldn’t find the author. When I was checking the quality of these subtitles I found online I noticed some errors but because I don’t know any Serbian I didn’t really notice how bad it really was until my friend told me after checking them in detail so this is a pretty much a completely new translation, also, quoting Mateja: “it’s a tough movie to translate as so much of it relies on word play and very specific dialogue”. Thanks again, Mateja, for taking the time to create proper subs for this great film. Enjoy, everyone!
