New wave in Yugoslav style
8 June 2007 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

New wave in Yugoslav style, one of the best YU movies ever made. Dzimi Barka is a handsome but quite untalented wannabe singer who is unemployed and wants to survive without working anything in times of economical crisis with stealing and cheating. He travels around Serbia, looks for success and meets women who are for him just objects to use for a certain purpose - sex, money or maybe career - and then to dispose. He does so until the sorry undignified end at the same place where he wanted to escape from. This is a movie about unperspective life of the working class in mud and greyness, between factories and villages .
