Countess Dora (Croatian: Kontesa Dora) is a Croatian pseudo biography film about Croatian first female composer Dora Pejačević. Filmed in 1990, it was released in public in 1993. It was written and directed by Zvonimir Berković. It was Croatia's submission to the 66th Academy Awards for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, but was not accepted as a nominee.[1]


Karlo Armano, a cabaret entertainer and film aficionado, meets countess Dora Pejačević in Zagreb. The two become close, and after a while Armano visits her at her estate in Slavonia hoping to spur the countess' romantic interest in him, but also to find a well-to-do patron for his film endeavors...
