the truth is stranger than fiction...or is fiction stranger than the truth?
29 May 2017 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

Three old men standing together atop a roof. They stare into the crowds of everyday citizens below, reminiscing in their own sad, quirky way. "Everything's changed except us." one of the men says profoundly and without pretension. Years upon years ago, these three men were involved in the production of a "classic" Yugoslavian film, which happened to be unfortunately made during the Nazi occupation.

This bizarre and occasionally surreal odyssey is unlike almost any other film ever made. Combining a slyly mocking reconstruction of a cheesy old melodrama, a portrait of the quirky characters involved in making said melodrama, a melancholic look at the damaged politics of the time in which this melodrama was made, and a sometimes harrowing and often inspiring biography of the melodrama's acrobatic star. All of these elements clash together to create a wonderfully weird small scale epic that is as hilarious as it is sad and as harrowing as it is happy. This film about a film is simply too strange to miss, and it is also too GREAT to miss. The Yugoslavian filmmaking mastermind Dusan Makavejev seems to be the only filmmaker in history to be able to pull such a concept off and have it be an endlessly entertaining, poignant, and humorous work of art.
