Who's Singin' Over There? (Serbian Cyrillic alphabet: Ko to tamo peva, Ко то тамо пева) is a 1980 Serbianfilm written by Dušan Kovačevićand directed by Slobodan Šijan. It was screened in the Un Certain Regardsection at the 1981 Cannes Film Festival.
On Saturday, April 5, 1941, one day before the Nazi invasion of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, a colourful group of random passengers on a country road deep in the heart of Serbia board a dilapidated Krstić & Son bus, headed for the capital Belgrade: two Gypsy musicians, a World War I veteran, a Germanophile, a budding singer, a sickly looking man, and a hunter with a rifle. The bus is owned by Krstić Sr., and driven by his impressionable son Miško.
Along the way, they are joined by a priest and a pair of young newlyweds who are on their way to the seaside for their honeymoon, and are faced with numerous difficulties: a flat tire, a shaky bridge, a farmer who's ploughed over the road, a funeral, two feuding families, Krstić Jr.'s recruitment into the army, and a lost wallet. All these slow the bus down and expose rifts among the travelers.
During the early morning of Sunday, April 6, amid rumours of war, they finally reach Belgrade only to be caught in the middle of Luftwaffe's raid (Operation Punishment). The only surviving passengers are two Gypsy musicians who sing the film's theme song before the end.
