The film follows a life of a homeless, but very well read, Marxist who is coping with Che's death and wishes to live a life of revolutions and workers' uprisings. He is a hypochondriac, bitter at the world, and blaming his old capitalist boss for his life's misery. Written by
This summer I had the great luck to see this movie by pure accident. During the film festival I wanted to see another movie, but this one was shown outside and I preferred fresh air, so I stayed there without even knowing what I'll see. Then ijan came to the mike and announced this movie. All of us there were fascinated! So it's not so much a movie about a person trying to cope with Che's death, as it's a movie about a guy, who wants to cope with his life. He's a bum, but entirely out of his own laziness. He always blamed somebody or something for his lack of privileged life.
Although this movie was said to be political, it really isn't. It's almost a documentary of the part of Yugoslavian society that wasn't suppose to exist. In the developed socialistic country there should be no beggars and everybody should want to work, for it was their privilege and right to work.
So watch it, laugh at it, but try and imagine it is all true, because it's very close to reality.
