Shady business
17 December 2011 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

The precise translation for this motion picture would be "Shady Business". And "Lov u mutom" pretty much is a story about it, told in a humorous way.

One of communist Yugoslavia's hot questions was concerning real estate issues. The market was officially closed for free trade, and if someone wanted to acquire an apartment, the state or an employer would provide. Private ownership was scarce, whereas most of the property was kept by the state. The occupants enjoyed the so called privilege of usage, which in most cases lasted forever. In other words, you'd get the flat to live in as long as you and your family are residents, and that's where problems started to occur. Not everyone could afford to get the tenant's rights, and then, some people with solid connections managed to acquire as many as they wanted. "Lov u Mutnom" tells a story of an ordinary blue collar, played by Bata Zivojinovic, who somehow managed to reside in a disputed apartment together with his ever growing family. As it turns out, many legal problems start to appear, while eventually the whole case ends up in the tricky justice procedures of Yugoslavian courts.

This all may sound like a mind breaking drama, but it isn't really. The whole story was very realistic, up to date and yet it's told in a humorous way like an anecdote. Interesting, amusing and somewhat instructing. Definitely worth watching.
