| Zagreb is not Zagreb Without the Lord of the Glembays!
"The Lord of the Glembays" is one of the best known plays of the renounced writer, poet, dramatist, and the leading intellectual Miroslav Krleza (1893 –1981) critically observing the morality and subservient life of the "petite bourgeois" or, as George B. Shaw would called in his "Pygmalion" the middle class morality.

Antun Vrdoljak's movie adaptation of Krleza's original play is a master- piece of the Croatian art expression of late 80s. The "politics" about reception of this movie somewhat expresses the dusk of the Former Yugoslavia break-up bringing a unique paradigm of Old Zagreb (known to Austro-Hungarian Empire as "Agram")that in 1988 infuriated many other film critics from Former Yugoslavia pointing that this movie focused all around the idea of the "petite bourgeois." Despite the old critiques, in this movie the audience can see the cooperation of all arts in Croatia-- from the exquisite acting, directing, movie editing, to the special production of the paintings series for the movie, marvelous stage-directing, superb original music created by the musician Arsen Dedic, and movie photography.

Vrdoljak was able to translate the traditional play into a dynamic, nerve-racking historical drama movie from the point of Leone's philosophical and expressionist mind that sets deeply into a viewers subconscious and hunt one's dreams.

If you have an opportunity to see this movie with subtitles, do it, you might find a new world that you will often want to see one more time.
