Loving Glances

One of the most important Yugoslav directors of the 70s and 80s, Srdjan Karanovic (Petra's Wreath, The Fragrance of Wild Flowers) was also a vociferous opponent of the Milosevic regime. Loving Glances, his first feature in 12 years, is a gentle, pensive satire on destructive nationalism. Labud, a Serb, is a refugee in Belgrade in 1996. While searching for his lost girlfriend, he finds a new one—a Muslim—via a computer dating service. The romance is monitored by the disapproving ghosts of his ancestors, who want him involved with someone ethnically “pure.” A fairy-tale ending sees multiculturalism triumph and love conquer all. In Serbo-Croatian with subtitles. 97 min.
