| zasto me svi udaraju u glavu?
The Promising Lad (1981), a quirky little drama and comedy set around the Belgrade New Wave scene at the dawning of 80's,whith some great music from the local new wave bands of the era,and some songs written for the movie.

Short set-up - young Belgrade student-type guy,after some "accidents" and head trauma,starts coming to terms with his parents,girlfriend,girlfriend's parents,society,life..while getting involved in Belgrade underground new wave scene...

solid little flick,one of the few homeborn movies of the time,that doesn't feel so "heavy",and is entertaining but still pretty serious social drama.

7/10
