A comedy with a bitter aftertaste
As one of the most significant films in the Serbian and Yugoslavian cinematography ever, “Balkanski spijun” is most often regarded as a comedy, which it is only to a certain extent.
The film works on many different levels and it’s virtually impossible to judge it after seeing it only once. Serving primarily as a social commentary and a metaphor for a national paranoia towards anything foreign, the film uses its main character Ilija Cvorovic as a vehicle to carry out both humorous and serious situations towards a bitter and somewhat prophetic ending. The great Bata Stojkovic (in one of his best roles here) has masterfully crafted a portrait of a man whose delusions progressively lead him from a state of comical confusion to a tragic crescendo of violence laden with conspiracy theories.
“Balkanski spijun” is a comedy that will make you think before you laugh and a tragedy that will make you laugh before you think.
Little men’s paranoia
It is interesting that films from the Balkans always inject comedy into each movie. I think it’s proof that every movie can be comedic. This kind of comedy has gradually become “Serbian form”. Today, many directors in Hollywood make films in this form. Duan Kovačević, master of drama can be placed at the head of Serbian films, as the most successful screenwriter of all time. Masters of this art Bata Stojkovic showed magic and once again proved that he is unsurpassable actor. This kind of acting we can’t see in Los Angeles or New York. There are Mira Banjac, Bora Todorovic and Sonja Savić who successfully follow the lead actor. Directing by Mr. Kovacevic and Mr. Bota Nikolic is fascinating. With little money to make this movie? This is laudable. All praise for producers. Camus’s philosophy of absurdity is passed through the context of the rotten ideology. This is a picture of how Tito affected people. Tito-Stalin relations has caused division in the nation. Many have become paranoid. It is no wonder that this movie came out a few years after Tito’s death when his power disappeared. Little man fell into paranoia against the great powers become the spy. Alone against all, he attempts to reveal the conspiracy at a high level.
