The first half of Montenegro seems to be a parody of Ingmar Bergman films, where characters wallow instead of doing anything about their problems. It's no accident that director Dusan Makajevev cast Bergman-regular Erland Josephson as the miserly husband.

This funny and subversive film is by no means as unwatchable as some people have made Makavejev's work out to be.

If it begins deceptively, as though setting out to be your typically angst-ridden Swedish art movie, by the time it's reached its set of climaxes,Makavejev's film could not have strayed further from the beaten track.

There can be something absolutely liberating about a movie that makes up its rules as it goes along.

A halfheartedly Surreal comedy filled with forced high spirits, unconvincing lunacies and failed sight gags.

A dish for the discerning palate.

The beginning of the movie is extremely engrossing, but just when you think Susan's journey is going to amount to something, Makavejev resorts to his old shock-value tricks.

A paean to the liberating power of dirt, as in both grime and smut.
