Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Vinko Bresan directed this Croatian comedy-drama, scripted by his father Ivo Bresan, about events at a Yugoslav army outpost on an Adriatic island at the time Croatia declares independence. To expedite the exit of the Serb-led army, locals set up a stage to harass the camp's commander Aleksa (Ljubomir Kerekes), who won't budge without a Belgrade directive. Instead, he threatens to blow up everyone by setting off the ammo dump. When art history prof Blaz Gajski (Vlatko Dulic) fails to retrieve his son from the camp, a local deserter loans him a uniform, enabling him to pose as a general. Shown at the 1998 Seattle Film Festival.
