'[Jurica Pavičić on Nikola Tanhofer] Tanhofer was, as film historian Skrabalo once said, a ‘filmmaker’ in an Anglosaxon sense – not just a ‘director.’ He was a skilled technician, curious, and always aiming to try something new, to change genres, visual styles, and experiment with techniques. He was not an ‘author’ the in auteurist French-theory sense, but . . . an explorative filmmaker.'
