Very original
6 October 2009 | by (Novi Sad, Serbia) – See all my reviews

Long before reality shows began their attack on our lives, Srdjan Karanovic made this movie. In it we can see how TV can trivialize any idea and ruin anything original. A lot of disappointment with the movie industry can be seen too.

Later on, Karanovic established himself as one of the best Serbian/Yugoslav directors (with "Petrijin venac", "Nesto izmedju", Virdzina...) but this was (I believe) his first great movie. However, many well-known Serbian actors are here (Ljuba Tadic, Aleksandar Bercek, Bogdan Diklic) and not so well-known ones provide very nice portraits of simple, non-educated folks.

Let me also point out that the movie shared the FIPRESCI award with Wajda's "Man of marble".

I must say, however, that if you are only looking for some fun, you may find this movie boring; but if you want a movie that will make you think, try this one out... if you can find it.
