Rocky, Serbian style
19 December 2011 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

You could say that "Tigar" or "The Tiger" is a Serbian version of Rocky. However, unlike Stalone, Sorga Tigar (played by Ljubisa Samardzic) will not reach stardom and become a top athlete. His fading boxing career is about to diminish, and all life turn upside down in a cataclysmic spin once he meets and teams up with a trouble making teenager, played by Slavko Stimac.

"The Tiger" is a good example of a comedy placed in real life. Although Sorga is a decent and straight in his heart, life of failure has brought his spirits down, whereas his young companion wants everything by a quick and easy way, no matter what the consequences are. Unfulfilled ambitions, bad influences, sport mismanagement and wishes for easy money will take the protagonists to all sorts of trouble, eventually even behind prison bars. A good humorous story was completed with a solid performance by the entire cast, including Bata Zivojinovic, Vera Cukic, Rahela Ferari, Pavle Vujisic and other brilliant actors of the era. All this combined with a professional technical background, proper editing and a very solid visual impression, earns "The Tiger" respect it deserves.

Unfortunately, like many good Yugoslavian films of the 70s, this title is long forgotten and overlooked.
