Gangster of Love
Gangster of Love is a documentary tragicomedy highlighting serious social issues. Twenty-five years ago, Nedjeljko Babić left his job as a carpenter to take up his calling as a matchmaker. His skills and nickname, Gangster, quickly earned him renown. When Maja asked Gangster for help finding a new husband, it seemed like a simple task at first. But Maja is a single mother and a foreigner, making it mission impossible for Gangster.
