Storyline

Lemi and Kiza are two brothers who have to bring their dead grandfather from Belgrade to Vrsac, and having spent all their money, they decide to smuggle the body by train. They dress the grandfather and put the body on the train and tell everyone that he is sleeping. After Lemi and Kiza go to drink in the dining car, a drug dealer Limeni fearing police, inserts a drug package in the grandfather's pocket. The train suddenly brakes and a case falls directly on grandfather's head. Other passengers, thinking that it killed him, frenetically throw his body out of the window, under the pretext that the grandfather got up and walked out. Then a search for the grandfather's body starts, but it will not be easy. Written by Nikola Popovic

Mrtav 'ladan
20 October 2008 | by (Rijeka,Croatia) – See all my reviews

"Mrtav 'ladan" is one of those movies that Balcan cinematography really needed. I'm not familiar with conditions in Serbian film very much, but I am with Croatian one; we make lots of very good movies and by the view in series like "Vratice se rode" or movies like this one,in Serbia things are also moving to better.

Milorad Milinkovic makes impressive directorial debut with black comedy "Mrtav 'ladan" and I hope we'll see more of his work on this level. I would recommend his first movie to everyone who wants to laugh to tears cause you cannot stay uninterested in characters like Lemi, Kiza, Limeni, Radovan, Mica... Story is great in its simplicity, characters are hilarious (in sea of crazy ones my favorite is Radovan), actors like Nikola Djuricko, Srdjan Todorovic, Nenad Jezdic or young Tara Manic are great (actually I would write down every single actor in this movie; there is also legendary Bata Zivojinovic) and Serbian humor, lines & curses (hope you don't mind that) are on high level. I don't want to say a thing about the plot, just watch this movie and see for yourself; hope people from Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia... won't regret it. Others with subtitles will not be able to fully understand how funny this movie is cause you can't translate curses and jokes to some other language. Highly recommended!!!
