Emir Kusturica was in the army at the time being. Military officials gave him a special 24h permission to leave Yugoslavia and receive the award in Venice.
The film was initially conceived for Yugoslavian television. Title of the film Dolly Bell refers to a lap dance girl of the Crazy Horse in 1959 Italian director Alessandro Blasetti's movie : Europe by Night.
In this film, all the actors speak with their own words, their own real accent. It's the first ever Yugoslavian movie where actors don't speak official Serbo-Croatian (the Yugoslav equivalent of BBC English), but the so-called Bosnian language, in fact, the language of Sarajevo.
