Sinisa Pavic again... but this time, and would you believe it, it's actually good. Yes, I think "Poltron" or "Arse Licker" is actually a pretty solid comedy. Not perfect or brilliant, but very decent and humorous in it's own way. Made in the late 1980s, when socialist Yugoslavia was counting it's lat days, "Poltron" comes as a satirical depiction of a corrupt state run company where no one seems to be doing anything meaningful, yet with paychecks coming every month.

Actually, the CEO is the only one who wants to do something, and he's pretty much alone in there... It costs him his wife, his health, his decency and eventually his job. Now, "Poltron" may be a comedy, but the (un)working habits described in the movie were not so far from the truth back in the Yugoslav communist era. Employment was granted by the constitution, and getting fired was almost an impossible task. Naturally, everyone used these flexible terms and reduced their productivity to a minimum, while the wages were payed up by the national budget... heaven, isn't it? Well you should acknowledge that the result of such an easy life was a massive credit debt, inflation and eventually civil war with a total bloody break up of the country. "Poltron" was filmed in 1989., 2 year before the whole hell was set loose, but still, if anyone was looking for a reason why it happened, there you have it... see the movie.

But don't take these socio-political analogies as a major story line. "Poltron" is a comedy and it should make you laugh. In short - a rotten socialist company has many employees, very little productivity and the only person with any ambition and working energy, the Director, fails miserably in his efforts. Ljubisa Samardzic, Mira Furlan, Zoran Cvijanovic, Milan Gutovic and all others have done a good job in this satirical movie.
