Velimir 'Bata' Zivojinovic,
A typically mindless Serbian turkey, without a beginning, middle or an end. To say SOS was poorly structured and badly written would be such an understatement that it would amount to a compliment for this trash. This hopeless pile of horse-kaka just plods along without rhyme or reason, its sole reason apparently to feature primitive, nouveau-riche "turbo-folk" singers/peasants at a time when that particular cultural pollutant had started being popularized in downward-spiraling Serbia.
The main protagonist is unlikable and dull. His motives are vague. The dialogue alternates between severely boring, confusing, barely audible and utterly pointless sometimes even managing to unite all 4 of these wonderful traits at once. Needlessly numerous characters come and go; we neither pay attention to them nor do they serve any purpose other than to pad the movie into infinity. None of them lingers long enough to become either relevant or interesting. The story doesn't focus on any of them with more than marginal interest.
I could almost see (or perhaps even hear?) the director snoring as he went through the motions. The editor must have been so fast asleep that the scenes seem as if arranged in random order. Not that ANY other order would have benefited SOS in any way, in spite of the endless mathematical possibilities.
I will just take a "wild guess" here that this mega-dull mega-bomb is one of those flicks OK-ed by the Yugoslav Communist Party as a favour to one or several of its criminal members.
Fans of Saban Saulic, Miroslav Ilic and other music-hating peasants might find something of interest here, others steer clear.
