Storyline

A homophobic, middle-aged, Serbian gangster ends up sacrificing himself to protect Gay freedom in his country. RADMILO (35) and MIRKO (30) are young and successful gay couple, and they would be a happy couple anywhere else except in - Serbia. They try to live discreetly but still, every day they are abused by the homophobic majority. Plus, Mirko is a gay rights activist, and his dream is to organize the first successful PRIDE event in Belgrade. This is almost a "mission impossible"; in 2001, an attempt to hold PRIDE in Belgrade ended up in bloodshed. One decade later, the situation is not much better - nationalist and neo-Nazi organizations prepare another massacre in case of holding the gay parade, while the police refuse to provide protection for the participants. A strange couple arrives in Radmilo's and Mirko's life - LEMON (45) an ex criminal and war veteran, the owner of a small security company and his fiance - PEARL (30) a beauty parlor owner. Radmilo, a successful ... Written by Srdjan Dragojevic

Dragojević's perfect laughter/tear cocktail!
26 January 2012 | by objesheni_sadamSee all my reviews

This in one of the best movies I've seen recently. It gives a great picture of today's society on the Balkans - a closed-minded, racist community where often people can't express their opinions freely without getting their asses kicked. It's not just the gay thing, there's plenty more in this film. It sends a warm message to all the countries from ex-yu. One of the thing not shown here, but implied, is the other thing I was talking about - it's hard to express your political and even national opinions - if you're a Croat, you're automatically against Serbs, and if you're a Croat in Serbia, boy you're screwed. And vice versa. People are just lining up to kick Serbs in Croatia, I know by what I've seen. Also, expressing a left oriented political opinion makes you a communist - also ass kicking material and other closed minded things. Homophobic problem presented in this movie is merely one tenth of the people's persistent stupidity problems here on Balkans. A good friend of mine is a lesbian, and she wasn't discriminated as much as people in this movie, but she helped me change my opinions. I think we all need that one interaction with the people of LGBT community to see that they're not fags, gays, lesbians, dikes etc. To see that they are just normal people living normal lives, just like you and me. We often don't see that unless we meet someone who's actually gay. This movie breaks the walls of prejudices and helps people see that there's nothing wrong with being gay. It's a very refreshing movie on the Balkan scene, and it will make you laugh your ass out, and burst to tears in the end. It's full of comic situations, especially Lemon's homophobic jokes, and I love that you can really see the transformation of his opinions, in such episodes as Ben Hur's, and you can see how it should be in all of us. The acting is great, the message is great, the humor is great, except one thing - Serbian movies actually have even more raw humor, and I find this humor very gentle compared to some movies I've seen. But still, 10/10 and a must watch!
