From Beno Saradzic ” Do yourself a favour and watch this film with high quality speakers because the music Vlad composed truly deserves to be heard in all of its glory. Hook your computer to multi-media speakers, home stereo, TV or headphones but DO NOT, for the sake of all that is holy, listen to the sound on the laptop’s crappy built-in speaker or just as unforgivably; muted!! This version features original score by Vladimir Persan and it is simply PHENOMENAL. Hats off to you my friend! ”
