FILM INFORMATION

Synopsis A group of gay activists in Belgrade strikes a tense alliance with Limun, a Serbian crime boss, whose fiancée demands an extravagant wedding that only struggling gay theater director Mirko and his friends can provide. In exchange, macho Limun reluctantly agrees to provide security for the group’s Pride parade. It’s a tall order: previous attempts to march met with mass violence from right-wing skinheads. When Limun’s gang balks at the assignment, he recruits a band of former Balkan war combatants, now dear friends, who will stand up to the aggressors Seven Samurai style, in this rollickingly shrewd and humane comedic take on a vital human rights issue.


About the Director Srdjan Dragojević was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia (now Serbia) in 1963. He studied clinical psychology at the University of Belgrade and film at the University of Arts in Belgrade.

REVIEWS

“Srdjan Dragojević directs with a good deal of intelligence, and is very much aware that his unsubtle characters offer an entertaining look at the culture clash between brutal Balkan machismo and a gay community that suffers violent attacks with little support or assistance from the authorities.” -Screen Daily

“In addition to gay rights, the film affirms the future of the regions states as mutually respecting, tolerant societies, united not by class consciousness or ethnic blood rivalries but by liberal values.” -Boston Review
