Storyline

Stipan is a policeman who comes to small Adriatic island off the Croatian coast in order to investigate reported strange phenomena that had frightened the whole population. At first, nobody wants to co-operate with him, but he finally finds that the island is being allegedly haunted by the ghost of Josip Broz Tito, Communist leader of former Yugoslavia. For Luka, the mayor, this is the opportunity to turn entire island into Tito-themed amusement park. Tito's WW2 veterans, on the other hand, don't believe in ghosts; for them, the apparition is actually Tito himself, who had returned in order to lead them into a new revolution which would restore Communism.

The only downside of this movie is that it communicates far better with the audience that has experienced the folly of totalitarian state, either communist (as former Yugoslavia was) or fascist (as all of newly formed Balkan states tend to be in greater or lesser degree).Ivo Bresan (screenplay) has had the long time reputation of non-compromising intellectual and a witty fighter for human and political truth. His son Vinko Bresan proved to be not only his father's faithful follower, but a great movie director too. This is a wonderful movie where fantasy and reality intermingle so well that they become one. It has been heavily loaded with subtle details and messages that depict picturesque Slavic (not only Croatian) mentality,and it has also been spiced with the juicy Dalmatian dialect which since the times of former Yugoslavia has been a trade-mark of exquisite humor. Camera brings a bit of surrealistic tone - it hasn't only been the reflection of the Adriatic Coast magic, but of Croatian genuine tradition of naive art as well. Acting is immaculate: relaxed,intelligent and natural. Great, great movie! All Croats, Serbs, and Moslems, whether they have been scattered throughout the globe or still live in their native countries, should see this masterpiece essay on human stupidity.
