"The Melody Haunts My Reverie"
Directed by Rajko Grlic
Voted as the third
best Yugoslav film ever made, and an Official Selection at Cannes, this daring film is the
story of an idealistic, young, partisan war hero who becomes a leader in the emerging
socialist society of a small Croat village, and finds adjustment to the "new
Yugoslavia" extremely difficult. He meets and falls in love with a middle-class
ballerina, becomes involved with her bourgeois family and is eventually imprisoned.
"A highly sensual romance
as passionate as it is politically catastrophic"
(L.A. Times). Croatian with English subtitles.
