Movie you can watch over and over, and still be amazed
This is one of my favorite movies. Its amazing humor, excellent characters flawlessly brought to life by great actors, interesting, funny, yet serious and many-sided story is one of best Serbian movies ever. Zoran is chunky 10-year old living in a house which his parents share with his grandmother, and aunt and uncle. During the communism in Serbia, ruled by popular dictator,Tito, many homes were taken away from their owners. Zoran’s family is, unlike most, against Tito’s dictature. Zoran, however, sees Tito as his personal hero, as a great man. His learned in school that Tito is greatest man ever, and, for a kid, this propaganda was very believable. Zoran will, during a field trip learn more about his hero, without meeting him, of course. Yet, in order to understand the whole greatness, you have to know Serbian people very well, and know their temper. Only that way, this movies amazing humor will be understandable.
childhood is the pits, especially under a personality cult
I knew practically nothing about Goran Marković’s “Tito i ja” (“Tito and Me” in English) when I started watching it. I was impressed. This focus on childhood in 1950s Yugoslavia manages to be both funny and disturbing at the same time. The protagonist is Zoran, a 10-year-old boy who writes a poem about how much he loves the country’s ruler Tito (his family doesn’t like the guy, but little Zoran is intent on proving what a good little communist he is). Sent on a trip with his classmates to recite the poem to Tito, Zoran develops feelings for a girl in the group while repeatedly angering the chaperone.
I wasn’t familiar with Marković or his work before watching this movie. A previous reviewer said that Marković’s work after “Tito and Me” sucked. I can neither confirm nor refute that, but having seen this movie, I’d like to see at least one more of his movies. As for Yugoslavia in the 1950s, I also recommend Emir Kusturica’s “When Father Was Away on Business”. I’d also like to see a movie or two about Yugoslavia’s foreign relations, especially how Tito’s defiance of the Soviet Union resulted in Yugoslavia’s expulsion from the Eastern Bloc (as Howard Zinn put it, the Soviet Union – like the US – didn’t want to support any revolution that it couldn’t control).
