Mirić:

Mr Kusturica, have you seen my three documentary movies / “XX vijek”.”Quick motion” and “Ispovjest Marije B.”/

What do you think about them and do you think I have any talent, due to the fact that I would like to study on a Film Academy in Prague?

Kusturica:

“Quick motion” is a film I don't really like….”XX vijek” is a good film, it looks like a practicing of cutting in 3rd or 4th grade on film academy… but film “Ispovjest Marije B.”…that is a proper film…that is real film!

Mirić:

So you like only one of my films, only one is the "real" one ?

Kusturica:

Look, many directors make films their whole lifes yet they still don't have a real film... you already got it!
