The best potrait of Yugoslavia
2 May 2020 | by anticurousSee all my reviews

This movie is a must for all the people who want to learn the unique mentality of Yugoslav people (mostly people from Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina). The plot is in a fictional village in Serbia that has all of the characteristics of a real place, even the name ''Gornje Polje'' (Upper field in Serbian) is a common name for Serbian villages. It shows the silly fear and nonsense that the communist regime in Yugoslavia and its president Josip Broz Tito imposed on the nation. The rising of illiterate poltroons on vital functions, the jealousy and hate towards family members because of that fear etc. In a comic and ironic way, that is typical for Balkan nations, it is beautifully shown how the ideological splitting of a nation looks like. Serbia and other Balkan countries are on the crossroad between East and West, thus there were (and still are) those who support Russia and those who support the EU and USA (in the movie it's those who support communism and the USSR and those who support capitalism and the USA). Also, the huge problem of Serbs - they think that they are in the spotlight of attention for everything and that their help and support can make a huge difference (specifically in the movie it's the event of Cuban missal crisis and Bay of pigs invasion and the conflict between Kennedy and Khrushchev), so they start a huge ideological fight, and when they're done fighting nobody knows why the fight happened. Strongly recommend this movie! Love from Serbia
