Storyline

In this light, fluffy comedy, a low-level clerk cannot make ends meet because his brood is in no way economically cooperative: his daughter is a lawyer looking for work, unsuccessfully; his son is a would-be astronomer who wants to spend his life studying without working; and his other son wants his own wheels. It is enough to send a father to the lottery, or to the soccer pool. Written by Anonymous

Highest Grossing Yugoslav movie ever
20 November 1999 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

"Tesna koza" is an urban satire directed by one of the Yugoslav most commercial filmmakers Mica Milosevic who was specialized in comedy.The movie still holds the title of Yugoslav highest grossing feature."Tesna koza" had over million viewers in theatrical release in ex-Yugoslavia which is a great result if we know that ex-Yugoslavia had a population of 20 million in all. The movie has a cult following in Bulgaria and ex-USSR. The comedy itself strictly focuses on satirizing the Serbian mentality.The whole movie is full of hillarious one-liners that are,unfortunately,funny only to Yugoslavs.The style of script is strictly American and the mentioned style is of comic book origin. This means that characters are described not only through what they do but also through their whole appearance and looks. Simic is fine as the clerk who has lots of problems while Gutovic's performance is hillarious in the role of Simic's boss. Lots of bad taste is fortunately covered lots of laughs and thus "Tesna koza" still remains as the monument of Yugoslav commercial cinema...
