Velimir 'Bata' Zivojinovic,
At a church in the country, eternally optimistic John marries Maria, his Atomic War Bride, as a war starts, planes buzz overhead and bombs start dropping. Though John is "mobilized" by the military seconds after the ceremony, he and Maria are reunited just in time for the Big Bang!
The movie is thought provoking and true to modern current events!
For anyone who grew up in the 60's and faced the Cuban Missle crisis, this movie brings back the thoughts and feelings of the time. The world of two young people in love on their wedding day, are thrown into a Candide-Like whirlwind of change, challenges and the unknown. Our world today has forgotten the fear of every school child of that time, who ducked under a school desk, covering their heads with a schoolbook to stop the atomic radiation. This dark and honest look into their lives is a clear reflection of what we will face if we cannot overcome the same obstacles to peace that they faced in the movie. Funny and downright silly slapstick comedy in many scenes of the film is artfully juxtaposed with the harsh realities of the evil forces at work in this world. Everone must see this film so that they can understand the true nature of war, and what we can do to try to change the ultimate outcome of any war caused by the unreasonable pursuit of power for the sake of power, by those using the justifications provided by the cloak of government compartmentalization and self justification based on the supposed wishes of the masses. God bless John Johnson and Maria!
