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
Movie does not have some needed quality as it is expected. It's a little bit grotesque. Like it has two movies which are not fully complemented, and which are merged into one. First part - about 80% of movie is not very serious, it is relaxed and not to much con-vincible. Gay acting - to bad, for me it would be better that actors were real gays and not strait ones. Gay picture which was presented does not reflect their behavior in real life therefore their acting was plastic and artificial. They are presented as real pussies, like chickens. Story is not realistic at all - like director was trying to force story to be liked for the mass public in former Yugoslavia. All countries have the similar problem with homophobia, but I don't think that it was necessary to force the story into all former republics, just to point that out. And release date is very interesting. Like Dragojevic has the real talent to release movie in right moment when current events would drag audience into cinema. Congratulations on that, but it is commercial compliment, and not artistic. Last 20% of movie has some seriousness and point about things which happened in our society, but as the complete story it is disharmonious and without continuous rhythm. I don't think that gay population would be satisfied with the presented picture of them, and that director and scenarist should have more guts to show the things more provocative and open minded, but for the start it may would be enough for the average consumer. Of course it is much better to make this kind of movies (even in commercial purposes), than those with raw violence, egoistic, and without a point. Congratulations to the main actor, who is always brilliant. Camera and photography are great, but we are used to it in Dragojevic's movies.
