Amazon Women on the Moon (1987)
Non-cliché humour, probably not suitable for majority of the audience, especially not in the present time. Highly recommended for Monty Python fans, since it's actually a series of rather unconnected sketches. I must say I really miss this kind of movies nowadays. Some may say making a schizophrenic cocktail of short skits is way easier than developing a complex story with strong characters, but I say it's the effect that counts. And Amazon Women on the Moon or Monty Python's Flying Circus may have some weak moments, but their genre allows them to switch to something completely different at once. In the mainstream movies, it usually takes ages to get from one mood into another, boring you to death in between.
Serbian cinematography in the last decade dealt mainly with post war traumas and political issues, which means it didn't attract much attention from viewers who don't sympathize with "nation attacked by the whole world". However, Munje! is totally unpolitical and unburdened with sending any messages to the world. It is just very, very, very funny movie! It deserves all the awards and praises by critics as well as the audience who stormed cinemas in Serbia when it was released (more than 600.000 viewers). It happens rarely that good movie is recognized by majority of the audience but Munje! is exception. I try to avoid modern movies from former Yugoslavia areas, because they are usually overvalued. But Munje! is made on another level, I dare to say Andric is metropolitan Kusturica. P.S. Watching Slovenian copy Tu pa tam leaves really bad taste...
