Storyline

Slobodan Milosevic is young promising guy. He is a solid student, obedient son and considerate boyfriend. But after his affair with one Swiss girl, all of that changes. When he told his girlfriend Masa about that affair she hits him in the head and he changes completely. He quarrels with his parents, runs away from home, has sex with different girls, even with Masa's mother, masturbates while driving the car, finds a way to express himself by playing rock'n'roll music and does similar anarchic stuffs. Masa thinks that another hit in the head would put the things back where they were, and when that happens and Slobodan starts acting normal again they plan a wedding. But in the middle of the wedding Slobodan hears that his friend from a band Pit had died and he, not knowing what else to do, goes bumping his head against the wall.

zasto me svi udaraju u glavu?
11 February 2010 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

The Promising Lad (1981), presents Serbian new wave and Belgrade "scene" at the dawning of 80's,which many of the Belgrade lads who were just born at the time,wish they could had been part of(some great music from new wave bands,and some songs written for the movie...)

Short set-up - young Belgrade student-type guy,after some "accidents" and head trauma,starts coming to terms with his parents,girlfriend,girlfriend's parents,society,life..while getting involved in Belgrade underground new wave scene...

solid little flick,one of the few homeborn movies of the time,that doesn't feel so "heavy",but still pretty serious and entertaining psycho-sociological drama(and again,great music and some nice babes!)

6/10 in my book 8/10 by "serbian movie standard"
