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
