Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat


Directed by Dusan Makavejev
Wellspring 1989 DVD/VHS Feature Film

This is another racy and idiosyncratic political film by Yugoslavian writer and director Dusan Makavejev (Montenegro). Set in an unnamed Central European country during the 1920s, it deals with revolution, law and order, and the awkward ways in which ordinary folks try to deal with change. Camila Soeberg plays the heroine who introduces the sexual revolution to her community as men from all levels of society throw themselves at her. Alfred Molina is head of the secret police, and Simon Callow is featured as the bumbling chief of police. In his screen adaptation of an Emile Zola story, Makavejev proves himself to be the only deeply political filmmaker with a rowdy sense of humor.
