Storyline

After the murder of the Russian Emperor Peter III, who was succeeded by Empress Catherine, Satan decides that the balance between good and evil on Earth has been destabilized. In order to set things right, he sends his representative to Earth - the teacher Farfa, who bears an unusual resemblance to Peter III. His mission is to seize power from the old Duke of Montenegro, and then to take back the Russian throne as Peter III. The people of Montenegro accept Farfa as their new leader, and he proclaims himself the new Emperor, Scepan Mali, successfully resisting an invasion by the Turks. Farfa is touched by the Montenegrins' kindness and courage, falls in love with the beautiful Elfa, and fails to follow Satan's plan. Not one to be crossed, Satan sets out to kill him.

What a film!
8 December 2013 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

If you want to see something different please try to obtain this film and watch it! It is a film where I saw a scene of group sex for the first time! I was so exhilarated, I watched it hundred times over. I was young then, living in what was then Yugoslavia. Scenes of sex on TV were rare, there was no legal porn yet.

Also, hierarchy of hell was never dealt in a film before. This is the first time. Very interesting! One of the must see films about former Yugoslavia, especially Montenegro. I do not think much of the Montenegrians, they burned my house in 1991 near Dubrovnik when Croatia declared independence from Yugoslavia. Montenegrian peasants did what they did in 1808 and 1991, they went to pillage and burn Dubrovnik. If they saw a good color TV in some abandoned Croatian house they would fight over it... Croatians at that time did not have weapons to match Serbian-Montenegrian weapons, what was then Yugoslav Army... but that is another story. So is the Balkan story...
