Special Treatment – Poseban Tretman

Providing a larger social and political commentary, this occasionally hilarious but consistently funny comedy looks at a closet alcoholic, Dr. Ilich, who treats alcoholism in others with an iron hand and a zany therapeutical approach. With Wagner’s music, a diet in which apples figure prominently, and exercises that look like a chicken trying to take off and fly, the doctor is convinced his patients will be cured. What really ails most of them is what caused their alcohol problem in the first place, so when the eccentric doctor takes six of his patients to a nearby brewery to demonstrate the success of his treatment, chaos results.
