Movie Info

CINEMA KOMUNISTO tells the story of a country that no longer exists, except for in the movies. Taking us on a journey through the crumbling remnants of the former Yugoslavia and President Josip Broz Tito's state-funded film industry, this fascinating historical documentary cracks the vaults at the famed Avala Film Studios - home to big-budget productions starring the likes of Richard Burton, Sophia Loren and Orson Welles - and explores the rise and fall of the cinematic illusion called Yugoslavia. Using rare excerpts from dozens of forgotten Yugoslav films, never-seen-before archive footage from film sets, and revealing interviews with many of the film industry's key players, including Tito's personal film projectionist, CINEMA KOMUNISTO recreates the narrative of a former country: the stories constructed for the screen and the ones hidden within the frame.(C) Music Box Films

  • A brash, diverting and slightly disorganised documentary that reveals how closely Yugoslavian cinema was tied to the Tito regime.

  • A great way to get the inside track on loads of weirdo sixties war movies without having to sit through them.

  • The worst sin of all, though, is that Turajlic's documentary is simply dull to watch.

  • [A] sad, but fascinating story ...

    November 25, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Plenty of diverting anecdotes and intriguing talking heads, but not much deep penetration into the events and issues depicted or their wider impact.

    November 22, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A nostalgic, poignant documentary, Cinema Komunisto , with its stunning archival footage, is fascinating and enlightening in its championing of a nation that's gone, but should certainly not be forgotten.
