Storyline

A homophobic, middle-aged, Serbian gangster ends up sacrificing himself to protect Gay freedom in his country. RADMILO (35) and MIRKO (30) are young and successful gay couple, and they would be a happy couple anywhere else except in - Serbia. They try to live discreetly but still, every day they are abused by the homophobic majority. Plus, Mirko is a gay rights activist, and his dream is to organize the first successful PRIDE event in Belgrade. This is almost a "mission impossible"; in 2001, an attempt to hold PRIDE in Belgrade ended up in bloodshed. One decade later, the situation is not much better - nationalist and neo-Nazi organizations prepare another massacre in case of holding the gay parade, while the police refuse to provide protection for the participants. A strange couple arrives in Radmilo's and Mirko's life - LEMON (45) an ex criminal and war veteran, the owner of a small security company and his fiance - PEARL (30) a beauty parlor owner. Radmilo, a successful ... Written by Srdjan Dragojevic

The movie about the fight for respect and human rights of homosexual population in modern Serbia
11 July 2012 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

The movie is actually not that bad as the last movies of Dragojevic, but still far away from the movies such as "Lepa sela lepo gore", "Rane", etc. I like the motivation, the subject is well chosen, it is intriguing, a kind of provocative. However, after the initial part, the movie starts to go in very bad direction. There are so many things that could be said about the gay activism, the gays could be finally presented as a very normal part of the society. Anyway, Dragojevic kept it as a light comedy that is also not too funny.

There are some nice moments. I really liked to see Limun singing the old partisan songs, or the jokes between him and his war "friends". However, I really didn't like to see that all the best jokes are already chosen for the commercials.

The movie is pretty unconvincing, especially the monologue of Goran Jevtic, which is supposed to be the pick point of the movie. It sounds almost pathetic. The same could be said for the preparation for the fight, or the most of the "gay roles". I think it is not enough to chose socially correct story. You need either to have something novel or to see something from a new perspective. At least, to be funny. All of this missed in the movie
