LITTLE BUDDHO is a dark ethnic comedy about Montenegrin teenager who is sent to Serbia in order to evade blood-feud caused by his father's reckless behavior. Little does he know that even greater dangers await for him. In Belgrade he will face both the avengers who went after him and this metropolis' very own nightlife and foxy ladies. And in cities like Belgrade - women and nightlife can be deadlier than a bullet. People of Montenegro are known for their specific mentality and system of values, not unlike Sicilians, Corsicans or Cretans.Written by
As much as Yugoslavia had reputation for good movies, especially in the 1980s, ex-Yu republics are doing their best to destroy this reputation without mercy. This was meant to be a black-comedy about the Montenegrins, their tradition of vendetta and their "occupation" of Belgrade. Also, the same story could have been done as an action drama. Unfortunately, it's neither. The story dramatization and characterization are tragic. Characters are completely two-dimensional, and the story acts as a dismal joke about Montenegrins stretched for an hour and a half. Jokes based on prejudices about Montenegrins are too exaggerated for a serious film, and yet insufficiently humorous for a comedy. True, I laughed here and there, but that does not change the fact that this is a very stupid movie.
