This Yugoslavian entry in the 1957 Karlovy Vary Film Festival was also known as Cursed Money. The titular cash was hidden by government officials in the early stages of WWII. Years after the cessation of hostilities, the money is discovered by a group of Yugoslav peasants. True to the film's title, the money causes nothing but grief and misery for all concerned. The film's "root of all evil" moral is hammered home mercilessly at every opportunity. What saves Zie Pare from degenerating into fluent tract are the likeable performances by the main characters.
