Illusive Summer ’68 – Varljivo Leto 68

Set against the backdrop of liberalization in Marshal Tito’s Yugoslavia in 1968, this comedy is about the coming of age of Petar as he looks for love just about anywhere, now that he has discovered it exists. His father is a distant sort who wants him to focus on his grades so he will have a chance of a good future (and be a good Marxist). Meanwhile, Petar has a crush on his beautiful teacher and wreaks havoc with his academic standing by trying to get back at her for bathing in the river with her male companion. This affront to his feelings is soon forgotten when he meets a charming young woman…
