Buffet Titanic - drama

A film made by famous Balkan director Emir Kusturica. His name is a recommendation by itself. Many movie lovers agree that Kusturica gave his best in his early works, like in this movie from 1979.

Balkanski špijun (Balkan Spy) - black comedy

Leading character is Ilija Čvorović, in interpretation of famous Serbian actor Danilo Bata Stojković. As a former political prisoner, now he is suspicious about everything and everybody. The most 'suspicious' is his subtenant, businessman just returned from Paris. Ilija and his brother begin their own investigation against this man because they believe he is the national threat. Their investigation is weird, funny and absurd.

Podzemlje (Underground)

Another movie by Emir Kusturica, with many great Serbian actors - Miki Manojlovic, Slavko Stimac, Lazar Ristovski, Mirjana Karanovic, Mirjana Jokovic, etc. It's a black comedy and it has many surreal and grotesque elements which is providing really unique art experience for the audience. Music in a movie is made by Goran Bregovic, which also contributes to the whole impression. If you like crazy, rough, wild, poetic and Slavic soul movie experience, this one is perfect for you. 


I didn't watch this one, but I heard very positive opinions. This is said on IMDB: Several friends from the childhood lead their normal lives, when one their old friend returns to the city. They all get together, and what begins as a reunion party of close friends with lots of catching up to do, turns into an emotional rollercoaster of dark humor, bitterness, anger, grim soul searching... Through the very personal accounts of their own lives and lives of their school friends, we get to reveal the omninous mark the final decade of the twentieth century has left on them... 

Bitka na Sutjesci (The Battle of Sutjeska)

Classic of Yugoslav cinematography, made in 1973. One of the characters is Yugoslavian former president Tito. He was the president almost 40 years and he was loved and criticized. In movies, he is often presented as a hero and that is the case with this partisan movie. The curiosity is that Tito is played here by Richard Barton

Ko to tamo peva (Who's Singing Over There)

Eppic dark comedy from 1980. Many replicas from this movie are present today in spoken language. The bus is starting its journey and people in it are traveling to Belgrade, it's April 5, 1941... Lot of funny characters are in that bus - freshly married couple with inexperienced but passionate groom, ambitious singer and seducer, two young musicians, a clumsy hunter, the character played by Bata Stojkovic, I don't even know how to describe him - stubborn pain in the ass, crazy bus driver and his father... This gallery of characters is making  a specific atmosphere in a movie... Don't miss this one. 

Ljubav i drugi zlocini (Love and other crimes)

An unsatisfied woman in her late 30s dreams about stealing the big cash and leaving the country. She meets a petty criminal ten years her junior who has the thing for her, and she asks herself is he the only true love of her life. Main actors Anica Dobra and Vuk Kostic. 

Vidimo se u citulji (See You in Obituary)

Unique documentary about the chaotic Belgrade underworld in the early 1990s against the backdrop of wars in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Many of these guys shown in a movie ended very soon, as the title implies, on the cemetery.  

In general, Serbian cinematography offers a lot to the movie enthusiasts and film lovers. In these movies one may find exciting life stories, acting of high quality and Slavic soul poetics.
