When there is no regular justice, demolitions man takes things in his own hands
28 May 2006 | by (Andorra) – See all my reviews

*SPOILER* This is the film about "alienation in socialism, about lost ideals of justice." Where is humanity, understanding in a socialist society? When did we forget what we fought for in second World War? You probably think now, that it must be some ridiculous plot. But you should bear in mind that the film was made in 1978, in socialist former Yugoslavia, at time people believed "alinanted West" is doomed.

Director Vatroslav Mimica is a leftist, rooted in 1968's. This sweet, coherent, and also powerful film reveals author's resignation over above mentioned alienation in corrupted society, that betrayed ideals of old partisans who "fought for freedom and equality" not to enable a few officials to live in castles...

Demolitoons man (with nickname Oblak /meann "Cloud" in English/), played by brilliant Pavle Vujisic, faces problem with municipal administration which is apparently corrupted and wishes to force Oblak to move from his beloved home to a "tall building", i.e. a skyscraper. One can assume that there's a lot of money at stake...

Anyways, Oblak first tries ordinary ways to solve the problem, but as you can guess, without success. He then approaches his old friend form the war and asks for help. But that friend of his, played by Izet Hajadarhodzic is now a senseless official, that in his own big house cannot feel empathy for his friend's problems. There is a touching scene, when Oblak comes to visit his friend in his house, and fascinated by the hugeness of it, takes his shoes off! An old peasant custom...

**!!SPOILER!!**

Oblak lost his fate in society he fought for. And being a demolitions man, he knows how to handle explosives. And he decides to outrun authorities by blowing up his own home! He know how to set explosives, for he used to blow up the bridges during II world War...!

This isn't, however, the act of an insane man, but rather of a resigned, bitter old partisan. Bitter critic of socialism in its decline.

Pavle Vujisic is - as always - brilliant. He can act by moving his single eyebrow. He overtook whole film.
