Jaguar's Leap

Certainly, one of the few trump cards of the film Jaguar's leap ( Jaguarov skok) is its leading actor Ljubiša Samardžić, one of the most popular Yugoslav actors. The genre of the film is also unusual, because thriller-drama movies partly made in America were pretty rear in Yugoslav cinema of the time. The scenario was written by Gordan Mihić; his wife Vera Čukić was one of the most popular actresses of the time whose name is one of the first listed in the credits of the movie. The film director Aleksandar Đorđević is a television and film veteran (his TV series Written Off ( Otpisani) still has a number of fans), one of the film music composers is Momčilo Bajagić Bajaga, while set designer Miljen Kreka Kljaković became famous while shooting the most complicated films by Emir Kusturica and Srđan Dragojević (U nderground, St. George Shoots the Dragon) ( Underground, Sveti Georgije ubiva aždahu). Smoki, as Ljubiša Samardžić was affectionately called, plays an unfortunate man who can never find the right vocation. He practiced hockey, drove a taxi, went into journalism and photography, but it didn't last long. Still, he married an American, which he thought was a great feat, but she turned out to be an incurable drug addict: a child born in that marriage is his only happiness, but it turns out he won't enjoy it too long either. On her return from India, she came to Belgrade, abducted the child and disappeared with him in America. How do you find someone who means so much to you in a country you don't even know? Bogdan (this is the name of the main character) is in a kind of impossible mission, all the years spent on missed vocations should not be repeated. In Serbian cinemas, the movie attracted 35,000 viewers, which is not too much for Serbian standards, but later DVD releases were very popular. Author: Nenad Polimac
