Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Do You Remember Sarajevo? Emir Kusturica does, fondly and grittily"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"A solid slice-of-communist-life film that succeeds because it avoids the pitfalls and cliches of the typical, bittersweet coming-of-age film."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Ideals are retained and growing up is never finished in Kusturica's droll, moving debut."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
"The photography is dark but the youthful and erotic spirit lightens the mood. You won't forget Dolly Bell any sooner than 16-year old Dino will."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
