Without quite returning to his Yugoslav roots or regaining all the energy of his early features, Dusan Makavejev gets back to the sources of some of his best 60s and 70s work in this ironic comedy (1993), winner of the Berlin film festival's critics' prize, about a Soviet army major (Svetozar Cvetkovic) who finds himself a derelict in Berlin just before the wall comes down. Intercutting clips from the Soviet propaganda film Fall of Berlin and getting a lot of mileage out of the progressive dismantling of a huge statue of Lenin in East Berlin, Makavejev remains the brittle collage artist he was in WR: Mysteries of the Organism; with Anita Mancic.
