What Is a Man Without a Moustache?

The opening of this dark Croatian comedy (2005) cuts between the absurd death of a womanizing construction worker and the spirited mourning of his widow at the funeral. After receiving a windfall settlement from his employer, she blows the money on some apparently worthless land, but the state pays her handsomely for access rights. The wealthy widow then sets her sights on a man who's never cheated on a woman--the bumbling local priest. The humor loses momentum as the cleric shuns her advances, and the action grows frenetic following the arrival of his twin brother, a macho general. Hrvoje Hribar directed. In Croatian with subtitles. 111 min.
