Storyline

Through Zagreb, Ljubljana, Vienna, Belgrade, Budapest, Paris, Utrecht and New York, the author is in pursuit of the heroes of his youth, trying to tell to his own self the story about the expansion of punk-rock and the fall of socialism. With plenty of music and shots from the times of the new wave, The Lucky Child is a little monument to the generation that was growing up with a strong belief that rock'n'roll is more important than life.

Nostalgic, musical documentary about youth cultural trends in late 70's/early 80's Yugoslavia
2 May 2006 | by ivona021See all my reviews

Yugoslavia does not exist anymore. But the music from the partly repressed, partly happy times (late 70's and early 80's) still exists, and time has been very kind to it. And the people who made that music are now older, one foot in present, another in the past, some wiser, some changed. They are now scattered all over the world. This movie brings most of them back together, and realizes that the crucial piece of puzzle is now damaged, a ghost, but life, imperfect, goes on. It also brings back the feel of Zagreb (ahh, that attitude!), and to some extent Belgrade (ohh, more attitude!), of those times, their culture, dialects, language, teenage angst (Communist repressions vs. punk and alternative), a bit of an isolated, naive, even arrogant idealism, and a lot of self-confidence and passion to change the world for the better.

It is a wonderful trip back. Everyone in ex-Yu lands should watch it. It brings back the state of mind that most people had in early 80's -- the one just preceding the late 80's disbelief and denial that the advertised civil war could ever, ever really happen.
