Funny and realistic look at reality
17 November 2008 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

A beautiful, satirical portrayal of the late 80's typical Yugoslav company, that functions without any economic logic, and common sense. Zoran Cvijanovic, is Radovoje Šulejic an up and coming young executive, that built his career on sucking up to higher management, and showing entrepreneur abilities in socialist economy, which basically means to take very good care of his own interests on public expense. He has a good roll model to learn from, his own father that lost his job 20 years ago because he stood up against crooks in management of the company he worked for. Radivoje is not to make the same mistake, so no matter how incompetent he is in doing his job, he'll make it up by being ready to provide any service to his boss. And the boss is just the opposite, the director Miodrag Krtalić (Ljubiša Samardžić), is honest, hard working executive, that despises leeches like Radivoje Šulejic, and is, by nature of the system he lives in, bound to be destroyed by the likes of him. Yugoslav political and economic system provided the perfect environment for sleazy poltroons that are thriving in former Yugoslav countries even today. This film perfectly shows all the abnormalities of that system, and in funny and satirical manner. Needless to say the spineless worm wins at the end, and the righteous suffer a stroke. 8 out of 10
