Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Goran Paskaljevic directed this French-Yugoslavian-Greek-Macedonian-Turkish comedy-drama about life in contemporary Belgrade. A Cabaret-like emcee introduces a collection of characters seen in the city during a single night: a Bosnian Serb family living in a garage, a middle-aged boxer who kills his best friend, an ex-cop beaten by one of his former victims, a young man attacked by a mob, a former student revolutionary, a VW driver caught in road rage after a minor traffic accident, and an angry young man who hijacks a bus because the driver dawdles over his coffee. The source of the film is a successful stage play by Dejan Dukovski. Shown at 1998 film fests (Venice, Toronto).
