    [img]http://dafilms.com/media/thumbnails/gallery/2012/05/11/0001-shutka-book-of-records_jpg_700x394_q85.jpg[/img] On the outskirts of the capital of Macedonia - Skopje, built on the former city dump area is the suburb of Shutka... a place of the most colourful characters on the Balkan - I personally guarantee that, because I meet them so many times! Shutka is actually the Balkans largest Romale (gypsy) community, and is a valley of untroubled ease and happiness and one of the poorest corners in Europe. There is no place like it - so many craftsmen of most improbable ingenuity in one place with the passions going rampant daily: the town-dwellers award their local cappuccino drinking champs and owners of the largest Versace collections, exchange cassettes of dated Turkish music, bring together goose-fights and vampire-slaying fetes, they even have their own interpreter of Bible and the most powerful conjurer in Europe... [img]http://www.dokweb.net/admin/user_img/lucina_movie/prev/512_8670569994a6ee7072b954.jpg[/img] This documentary is refreshingly funny, surreal, and almost perfectly done. The director Aleksandar Manic once brings to life and attempts to restore on film the colourful kaleidoscope of events embodying the buoyant aura of the pre-war Yugoslavia. And outstanding Jasar Destani, Bajram Severdzan and many more real locals are helping him with all their might. [img]http://www.eastsilver.net/admin/user_img/lucina_movie/prev/512_13331198034ac4c6d212380.jpg[/img] A must for everyone who loves a good laugh! Enriching and enchanting!

    Either Bruno or Borat stands pale in comparison to Shutka's denizen...I am little bit perturbed by the connotation of Islam in this movie...that aside... this is a mind opening, perfectly layered, socially undertone documentary...all in all a fascinatingly bizarre and peculiar film...if you think you're the champion...wait until you see this one... :)
