Innocence Unprotected was originally filmed in 1941 under the title Nevinoz bez Zastite; it was meant to be the first all-talking feature ever made in Serbia. Yugoslav gymnast Dragolijub Aleksic wrote, produced, directed and starred in this simple tale of a young man who rescues his lady love from her wicked stepmother. The film was never released, falling victim to the Nazi censors; later on, the film was condemned as pro-Nazi (huh?) Flash-forward to 1968: documentary filmmaker Dusan Makavejev

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Makavejev's third film, an entrancing collage using excerpts from the first Serbian talkie, a hilariously naïve melodrama made in occupied Belgrade in 1942 with film stock stolen from the Germans.
I value Makavejev's extraordinary insights into ordinary affairs and his gentle juggling act with Acrobat Aleksic.
A funny and genuinely endearing tribute to an innocent folk hero -- bizarre in spots, and definitely Makavejev.
Early Makavejev which shows a number of his thematic elements taking shape in a witty, probing study of juxtaposition.
