The story about Dzimi Barka
22 July 2001 | by cenga50See all my reviews

Zika Pavlovic was,probably, first ex-Yugoslavian director who didn't make a stupid movies about Tito's partisans and their fight against Nazis.His movies was about a modern life in ex-Yugoslavia and problems of "our fellow Yugoslavians". "Kad budem mrtav i beo" ("When I die",on English) is a story about Dzimi ( it reads: "Jimmy")Barka,young, handsome,charismatic,but pretty unsuccessful singer from a small town in central Serbia.Dzimi wants to go in Belgrade and become a famous star of pop music,but...this story has a tragic end,like every Balcan story,anyway. Role of Dzimi Barka was a first big job for Dragan Nikolic,one of the best ex-Yugoslavian actors.This role became some kind of his trade mark. Pavlovic was a genious artist and just a few ex-Yugoslavian directors can make such a good story about people from yugoslavian province. This movie is a masterpiece of ex-Yugoslavian film making!
