After Austro-Hungary has announced war on Serbia, two blood brothers from Leskovac, Cone and Dine, have joined the Serbian army. Not long before that, Cone has asked for Zorka’s hand from her father and his proprietor Živko. While Dine helped his family in running a small cinema in a tavern called “Pariz”. Both are now deserting their lives and going to the Great War.
Truly great cinematic potential of this film is reflected in the fact that it brings us closer to one of the most renaissance periods of economic development in Leskovac and South Serbia. In addition, it displays a specific character and charm of people from that territory which has rarely been seen in our cinematography.
In a historic crate between the two Great Wars, a blink of two decades, broken-down Šašit pašina kasaba has turned itself into Serbian Manchester.
Those, whose visons have not been clouded feed their soul with pictures on the screen in the local cinema. Silent images from the pub “Pariz”, enriched by the unique “Leskovac’s tone”, have flooded the dusty streets and rare cobblestone.
