In a small European country, the king is scheduled to visit a small, quiet and "safe" village. It turns out that while the village may indeed be small, it's neither as quiet nor as safe as it's expected to be.

Marilyn Jordan, an American, lives in Stockholm with her Swedish husband and family. Her behavior is bizarre, perhaps mad: she poisons the dog's milk and advises the dog not to drink it; she sets the sheets afire as her husband sleeps; she crawls under the dining table to sing. While detained at airport customs for carrying pruning shears, she meets a young Yugoslav woman and goes with her to a Gypsy enclave where she's fought over, takes a lover, helps with the sordid entertainment at a bar, and returns home more dangerous than before. The film also tells parallel stories of Marilyn's daughter becoming a junior homemaker as the young immigrant practices her striptease. Written by
On its original USA release, this film was cut by seconds to avoid receiving an "X" rating from the MPAA. This "R"-rated version was also soon seen on home video and premium cable in that country, but in more recent years the uncensored original has turned up on both as "unrated." See more »
A delightful study into the disintegrating psychology of a bored and frustrated housewife
It is funny, very erotic, passionate, and riddled with jabs into society's snobbish attitude toward sexual fulfillment
A very wealthy American woman is married to a dull Swedish businessman When the husband is about to leave for Brazil, she decides to go along with him, but is held up in customs and misses the plane Trying to get back home, she is caught up in the life-style of a group of vibrant Yugoslavian immigrants living in Sweden She falls in love with the peculiar manners of the group and decides to stay for a couple of days, ending up in a romantic affair with one of the workers, singing in a topless bar, and having a lot of fun
In contrast to Makavejev's other noteworthy films, "WRMysteries of the Organism" and "Sweet Movie," "Montenegro" is light and uncomplicated... It's a simple story simply told The message is the samesexual repression leads to insanity, but sensual indulgence livens the spirit
"Montenegro" does not exploit its eroticism; it lets it grow out of the situation, out of the characters When Susan Anspach is seen taking a shower, it is photographed in a very beautiful, soft manner... When a couple is making love, the camera pans up their reeling bodies only long enough to establish their lovemaking, then moves on
