Product Description

Srdjan Dragojevic's THE PARADE takes a comedic look at Serbia through the lens of one group's fight to hold a Gay Pride parade in Belgrade. When a bulldog is shot, an improbable alliance develops between two very different men. We meet Pearl and Limun (Nikola Kojo), a couple about to be married, and Mirko and Radmilo (Milos Samolov), a couple involved in the Gay Pride parade. Mirko happens to be Pearl's wedding planner and Radmilo, his partner, turns out to be the veterinarian who saved Limun's dog's life.

After a lover's tiff, Limun - who is less than accepting of Gay Pride - makes a deal to protect the participants in the parade in order to win Pearl back. Limun and Radmilo embark on a road trip across Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo as Limun attempts to assemble a fearsome security team for the parade. As they gather Limun's old friends from the war, it becomes clear to all that so-called enemies are often your greatest allies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stupendous Tale of Serbia Gay Pride 7 July 2013
By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Released in Serbia where it was made as `Parada', `The Guardian' called it `a cheeky crowd pleasing comedy' and I have to agree, but it is also much, much more. It features a gay couple Radmilo and Mirko. Radmilo is a veterinarian and Mirko is a designer and wedding planner, he is also a gay rights activist and wants to put on the first ever `successful' Pride Parade. When it was attempted in 2001 there was bloodshed and the police failed to act to protect the paraders.

A decade later little has changed and both men face homophobia on a daily basis, there is a bit of information at the start of the film listing some derogatory terms in Serbian such as `Peder' which is a pejorative term for being gay. This will come in handy as Radmilo drives a very pink Mini Cooper which is continually being vandalised by graffiti. Then he is presented with a gun toting thug whose pet Bulldog has been shot and ordered to save the mutt or he too will not survive. This is Limun (Nikola Kojo `Pretty Village, Pretty Flame') and he is also getting married to high maintenance Beauty parlour queen - Pearl. Only she wants everything to be done her way and that means hiring Milo.

Well to cut to the chase she threatens to cut off the wedding unless Limun and his ex war veteran mates provide the security for the gay marchers. Despite his misgivings he agrees and that is where the fun really starts - especially the constant references to `The Magnificent Seven'. That was one of the things that likens this to an Emir Kusturica film, who I think writer and director Srdjan Dragojevic must have been influenced by and I am all for that.

This is a laugh out loud movie that tackles homophobia, the scars of civil war and crime head on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if a bit disturbing 25 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
I did write a more comprehensive review of this film but it wasn't accepted by the algorithms controlling this piece of programming i.e. it filters out any offensive words and blocks the review. The offensive words by the way weren't mine. They are the derogatory terms constantly used by almost everyone in this film - even if they are on the side of the gay pride marchers. It's a cultural thing we are lead to believe.

Anyway...I am not about to rewrite the review again. Enough to say that this is a very involved black comedy and comes from a city where the citizens seem to barely tolerate a different hair style let alone a life style. Most of the characters are based on real life people for no other reason than you couldn't make them up. Some are the usual stereotypes. It's not laugh out loud humour as the topic is a bit grim but it is well worth viewing . You will be the better for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Memorable comedy 28 Mar 2014
By Petrus
Format:DVD
A refreshing, sharp and bitter sweet comedy that takes a unflinching look at prejudice and homophobia. Despite the pastiche moments the acting is authentic with excellent comic timing from the cast, enhanced by good directing and editing. Its warm humanity shines through in all the scenes. Highly recommended.
