Plot – Spoilers:
Marko is a wannabe Serbian director fresh out of film school. Though his Dad is fairly well-off, Marko finds it hard to get anyone to bankroll his movie. He takes this badly especially since he considers himself a bit of an artist and eventually breaks up with his girlfriend and moves out of his comfortable life and into the suburbs.

Out on his own without Daddy’s money, he eventually enters pornography and gets to know the circuit. But when he wastes the producer’s money on a personal art-porn project, he is forced to head on the run. He bands together worn out porn actors and heads to the Serbian countryside entertaining village folk with shocking porn-themed theatre. By this point, he attracts the attention of a mysterious German who has international clients willing to dole out huge amounts in their thirst for authentic depravity. Marko and his gang get drawn deeper and deeper into the sickness and are not sure if they are prepared for what they encounter.

Some memorable scenes include:
1. A transvestite pleasuring a horse

2. Several snuff movies shot by Marko, but the chainsawing of a tree alongside a guys head is fairly original.

If A Serbian film was a comedy, it would be this film. Mind you, it contains some sick scenes as well, but interspersed with some attempts at humor. Not sure if the two mix well together but there is no doubt that that this is a movie in its own class. Comparable to ASF but not quite there as far as shock value goes. Still, enjoyable in a strange way. Cheers!

I just finished it and wasn’t sure that I liked the ending but I am with you on that. It seems like the only way to tie up the themes contained in the heart of the film.

Serbia as a nation has gone through some serious trauma…it shows in many of its films after the traumatic breakup of Yugoslavia…excellent film that reflects that…

Well done! It had a wonderful traveling family feeling through out. I loved the characters, the story, and layers of emotions that were well handled. It wasn’t in the same league/tone as A Serbian Film for me, this was a film I would recommend rather than give a heavy disclaimer for. Thanks for this website and the folks that share these gems with us!

Sweet Baby Jesus… What a great film… Daft… Horrendous.. pretty genuine… Comedic… Horrible all in equal measure and with a thick smattering of politics and society issues to boot… Oh and lots and LOTS of sex and death.
