Cough Cough
6 October 2001 | by (Belgrade, Yugoslavia) – See all my reviews

Huh... The films in Yugoslavia are just getting worse and worse. Again we have very primitive, beer down your throat buddy film here. And actually very boring one. Just when you think, start watching very beginning that something can happen, in very next moment you are splashed with same hysterical approach Serbian directors have to nationalism,patriotism and social coolness with which Serbs are so proud of.The idea is in some way cute and chilling but director Dragan Marinkovic have done twisted work with it where the plot actually don't exist. It's just a simple,plain story in which they wanted to present that all miseries and misfortunes that happen returns as boomerang. Good becomes bad, bad becomes good, criminal becomes honest, idiot becomes clever, witty person. It is just too much considering that characters aren't actually real. And the situations they put themselves are overbuilt and pretentious. The pace and mise-en-scene are dreadful. Actors were losing themselves practically laughing at themselves for doing mediocre work. The only good thing in the whole film is character and performance Milena Dravic did. She is absolutely breathtaking, I was at the edge of my seat on the scene at the movies. She was absolutely wonderful, an Oscar winning performance for supporting actress.But all in all this film is completely not worth seeing cause a lot of people would be annoyed and by the direction and by the pace. Pity cause the idea is really good but completely not put into right direction. 2/10 + 2 for Milena Dravic only
