This Yugoslavian production was issued in English-speaking countries as It Was Not in Vain. Boris Buzanic plays an idealistic young doctor who is assigned a nearly deserted village. The backwards residents at first resent Buzanic's new-fangled methods. Gradually, he proves his worth and wins their confidence. The clincher comes when Buzanic rids the community of a despotic villain (could this have been a veiled commentary about Yugoslavia's attitude toward the Soviet Union?) Nije Bilo Uzalud was one of the better-received offerings at the 1957 Berlin Film Festival.
