Ex-soldier Marko storms into a supermarket and takes all the cashiers hostage because one of them insulted his grandmother. One of the cashiers is Jagoda, a self-conscious country girl in her late 20s or early 30s who thinks that she passed her "expiration date" long ago. A surreal situation jazzed with comedy stunts helps Marko and Jagoda find their places in the world.Written by
This is a really funny movie. It really is. An assessment after ten years ( a bit more) is that this is a lightweight comedy with minimal political points that is really very enjoyable. Is it Battleship Potemkin? No, of course not. But it is FUNNY. When it's funny, it is really funny. I laughed a lot in this movie. There is some wordplay that the Western subtitled version misses, of course, but it's still really amusing and at times, sweet. It reminds me of HIGH FIDELITY at times, with it's bringing together people. This is one of my favorite Serbian movies. Oh my god, the grandmother, the old veteran with his Kinder Eggs... the expatriate 'Serb' running an American supermarket in a culture she knows nothing about... The electric-eye doors, the assault on the senses that the Supermarket is! Too funny.
Oh: "I'm Falcon, not Chickenhawk!" Funny, funny stuff.
