This sentimental comedy, in turn delightfully amusing and tragicomical, tells a tale of a working-class neighborhood in Zagreb during a ten-year period after the end of the Second World War. It is a story of people who rely on humor and song to survive their anxious times, preserving their traditions and their way of life despite the tumultuous upheavals that surround them. A range of colorful characters create a unique microcosm of an old-fashioned way of life, in which it is as natural to burst into song as it is to talk, creating a film which at times resembles a musical.
The story focuses on the Skrinjar family, who live in the squalid, yet homely suburb of Tresnjevka, and in particular on Tomica Skrinjar, who has fancied his pretty neighbor Janja since they were children. As they both come of age, Tomica is surprised to realise that another beautiful girl, Tonka, is blossoming right next door. Sleep Sweet, My Darling is a film full of warmth and humor, a coming-of-age love story of a search for happiness and beauty, defying chance and destiny. The film is based on the book “Jos Hrvatska ni’ propala” written by Ivan Pahernik.
