Storyline

In the early 20's there's a group on anarchic artistic yugoslawian yahoos traipsing around the rural never-lands of what then was the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. The leader of the pack is a Serbian futurist/dadaist poet and bohemian Ljubisa Micic, who with his friends, lovers and partners, starts the highly ephemeral, Balkan's own avant guard movement the Zenith(ism)! Odd things happen as they get mired in our lovely, mostly Panonian muddy roads, while the cablegrams and exchanges keep pouring from the source so diverse (and equally famous) as a Tristan Tzarra (auf Zurich!), Vladimir Vl. Majakovsky (auf Moskau!) or the beloved Italian futurist Marinetti! Against the backdrop of the genius misplaced, some gorgeous Slavic women, brave and insane eccentrics (including the Slovenian strongman a la Zampone in Fellini's "La strada") -there's much to marvel upon and learn from this 1980 pearl of the Yugoslavian cinematography. Written by Boris

The art falls apart
29 August 2004 | by miodragvSee all my reviews

This is a brilliant surrealistic film.

But also a fully realistic story about a time when the brave avant-guarde artists were trying to explore the unknown landscapes of human possibilities.

The contrast between two realities: the poor village and the dadaist artists is shown very smart and brings the possibility of changing the world by the art.

Unfortunately, that progressive ideals of making the world better by revealing new areas of imagination, that ruled in the first half of XX century, were crushed by the war.

And, the tragedy finishes: the artistic ideals are dead, international art brotherhood also, but, as a real disaster: Yugoslavia is also dead, as a country, but as an artistic vision of nation's brotherhood, too.

So, the art falls apart
