Fascinated by his friend's success abroad, an out-of-work barber Surda tries his luck in Germany. Uncapable to accept any job that would suit him, he returns to his homeland in disappointment. Based on a popular TV serial "Hot Wind".
I recently came across a site with a lot of old Yugoslavian movies and decided to randomly watch some. I wasn't alive back then, but it's always nice to see the culture and cinema that your parents were raised on.
I actually had a blast watching this movie. It was such an unexpected and fun experience. If you're a fan of so-bad-that-they-are-good movies, definitely watch this one. It's like watching a Serbian Gerard Depardieu lookalike going around beating up people all Jason Seagal style. It was obviously filmed on a low budget, but that only adds value to this gem.
The movie centers around a taxi driver and the close-knit community of taxi drivers in Belgrade. After finding out that his wife got tied up with some seriously shady people, he goes on a rampage, finding everyone involved and beating them to pulp, never being too busy to stop for a cigarette and drink.
Admittedly, there are some plot holes, and I'm not sure if most of the comedy in the movie was intentional or could be thanked for to limited budget, but it doesn't even matter. What surprised me the most was that the film succeeded in transferring an emotion to me. I was dying of laughter all the time and then felt a sense of pride and happiness for the characters during final scenes, and I don't usually get involved in movies to that extent.
