A film about the adventures of organizing a Pride parade in the millennial Serbia. It involves a handful of gangsters turned bodyguards for the parade, a set of dark humor and plenty of serious questions to be tackled.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
not a good filmmaking, and story is flawed for so many reasons. it's really annoying that one has to sort of 'like' it because it tries to be pro-lgbt rights in the highly homophobic environment in Serbia
The recent prohibition of the Gay Pride in Beograd shows that this film is courageous and sane. Not a masterpiece, but may help to laucnh the dabate on the respect for gays in circles which are not reading Proust or Oscar Wilde.
I would give it less due to unimpressive, forced comedy elements, but the fictive idea of unity among nations was pretty emotional for me. And combining that with the question of sexual minorities worked nicely.
Full of stereotypes that are not even typical of Serbia. It's not funny but desperately trying to be. Dragojević approached the problems of lgbt population and post national conflict very naively and superficially.
