  • The Powder Keg/Cabaret Balkan

    1998. France/Greece/Macedonia/Turkey/Yugoslavia. Directed by Goran Paskaljevic. Screenplay by Paskaljevic, Dejan Dukovski, Filip David. With Miki Manojlovic, Lazar Ristovski, Dragan Nikolic, Sergej Trifunovic. Paskaljevic's best-known film takes place over one savage night in the capital as Yugoslavia is being torn apart by fighting in Bosnia and Kosovo. The narrative follows numerous frustrated and angry characters who turn to mayhem in Belgrade. David Stratton of Variety comments, "Each of these characters reps an aspect of the Serb character—romantic, fiery, soulful, fatalistic, violent, bitingly funny, and self-critical yet quick to take offense." In Serbo-Croatian; English subtitles. 102 min.
