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

Critic Reviews for Cinema Komunisto

All Critics (8)

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

[A] sad, but fascinating story ...

Plenty of diverting anecdotes and intriguing talking heads, but not much deep penetration into the events and issues depicted or their wider impact.

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

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.

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