The Man with Four Legs

At a time when his greatest television successes were long overdue, Radivoje Lola Đukić decided to screen his own theatre piece, primarily because the production was cheap. It was a chamber situation comedy, and it was always easy to get actors and film crews to work for reduced fees. Although the folk burlesques were very popular at the time, the former king of humour was no match for the flood of franchises that occupied the Yugoslavian cinema market. While others may have boasted half a million viewers, Man With Four Legs ( Čovek sa četiri noge, 1983) barely reached thirty thousand. Still, his former audience was not dissatisfied; just there were not enough viewers to make the movie one of the hits of the year. This was later compensated in television reruns and much later in VHS and DVD distribution. Đukić's trump card was his favourite actor Mija Aleksić. He plays a so-called "socio-political worker" named Jovan Jovanović, who barely waited to stay alone in his apartment for the New Year: even his wife, Nada (Milena Dravić), travelled to another destination. Just as he started to enjoy the solitude, the doorbell rings: it is his neighbour Daša, completely naked because she has just taken a shower, there is no water, her lock is broken and she cannot go back to her apartment. Jovanović is not used to such challenges, Daša is extremely attractive and their bodies touch each other whether they want to or not. The desired idyll did not come true, chaos ensues as first comes Jovan's assistant, then a photojournalist eager for sensations, Daša's husband and finally his Nada. Jovan is horrified, so he decides to sue himself to find out what others think of him. Đukić's fans will have a good time, while others will be intrigued by Tanja Bošković taking off her clothes even when it is not required by the plot. Author: Nenad Polimac
