Fantastic comedy from Sijan
11 March 2005 | by (Lawrence, Kansas) – See all my reviews

This is a very humorous movie about communism and Marxism, or rather, communists and Marxists. It 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.

Sijan gives a funny portray of his world and jokes about many caste of people in Yugoslavia at that time. He is using his famous and recognizable subtle humor, which combined with fine acting and a great overall story, results in a great piece of art.

Characteristic for Sijan's movies, this one also contains some fantastic and quotable one-liners. My favorite by far is: "Ovo nije brada klanja, ovo je brada razocaranja!" (this is not a beard of slaughter, this is a beard of disappointment), referring to the main character's Marxist, and not nationalist nature.
