Great movie for "culturally proficient" people, 6 July 2012

This is a great movie, but if you are accustomed to standard movies, where the story is pretty straight forward, then this is not for you. For understanding what's going on you need to know what was going on in the country in those days. The movie mixes history with black humor, with non sense and tells you important things without telling them directly. That's why I really like the movies of this Director, he is telling you something behind the scenes that's very powerful, but if you only focus yourself on the 'standard' plot then you missed the whole point. I really liked Tony Manero and this one, great movies but only if you go a step ahead, otherwise I agree that it could be nonsense, but definitely is great just for those able to understand it.
