Brilliant naturalistic touch
7 February 2003 | by (Zagreb, Croatia) – See all my reviews

Kad budem mrtav i beo is one of the best movies made by great Serbian/Yugoslav director Zivojin Pavlovic, one of the best European directors in second half of the 1960s. His mighty naturalistic approach in films like Povratak, Neprijatelj, Budjenje pacova and Zaseda here achieves a peak through episodic, picaresque story of young would to be singer Dzimi Barka, anarchic individual without specific goal, except not to work (and likes to have sex with any woman whom meet on his ramblings, if she's barely attractive). Film also contains irony approach to Yugoslav partisan mythology, JNA (Yugoslav National Army), work class - all the holy objects, untouchable sacred things of Yugoslav socialistic society. Artisticly and politicly very brave movie, Kad budem mrtav i beo is terrific blend of comedy, drama and, finally, absurd tragedy.
