Boomerang

Synopsis: 'Yesterday's tragedy is today's comedy.' Caffe 'Boomerang' is one of Belgrade's many cafes. Seemingly just a backdrop for our cast of crazy characters, but in reality much more than that. It stoically puts up with its guests, and their misguided efforts to control their own destinies, until the very end when it too has had enough...

BOOMERANG:

GOOD MORNING,

MY DEAR FRIENDS.

THE GUARDIAN ANGEL HAS ONCE

AGAIN APPEARED OVER SERBIA.

AFTER A FEW WARS,

TWO EARTHQUAKES,

ONE BIG FLOOD,

ONE BOMBING CAMPAIGN,

AND A SLIGHT MISUNDERSTANDING

WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD

PEACE FINALLY:

REIGNS IN SERBIA.

HOW LONG IT WILL LAST?

NO ONE KNOWS.

BUT FOR NOW,

LET'S SEE HOW SOME PEOPLE

ARE LIVING AND ADAPTING

TO THESE BORING:

TIMES OF PEACE.

AND I, THE GUARDIAN ANGEL WILL

JOIN YOU AGAIN IN 90 MINUTES.

Morning, Bobby.

Cool!

What's this junk?

Ro-lex.

Three points!

How dare you fire at me,

you little sh*t!?

I can't get drunk in my own

bar without people teasing me.

As soon as I open my eyes,

I see only darkness.

Don't touch Darinka!

No-goods like you have

ruined this country!

Everyone else does something.

Drug dealing,

cigarette smuggling...

But you just spend my pension

and sell the family heirlooms.

Speaking...

Yeah, I've got Darinka.

Of course it is an original.

From my granny...

Yes, sir. No, it's not

stolen; it's inherited.

Okay, tonight at Boomerang.

Boss, how about I report her

to the police? -To the police?

Find her, you idiot!

Who am I working with...?

'O, accordion of mine,

Soaked with tears,

Do you know to someone

else my darling is pledged?

Do you know to someone

else she is pledged?'

May God bless you, son.

May He give you health.

May God give

you happiness.

Don't use all that God stuff

on me. -Okay, I won't.

Don't go to the cinema

today. I see misfortune.

It's just

some comedy anyway.

There's an excellent

movie tomorrow.

Griffith's

'Birth of a Nation'.

Real racism! Great!

Today something bad

might happen.

Well where should I go then?

- Let me think.

Here, have a smoke.

- No thanks.

Did I mention that there's

an interesting exhibition...

...at the National Museum?

- Get lost! Beat it!

Whatever. I've warned you.

Something bad might happen!

Don't do that, kid.

You have to pay, kid.

- I know I have to pay, lady.

Is something wrong?

A migraine. I haven't

slept for three days.

I've got just the thing.

- It's no use.

I took ten German aspirin.

No affect.

This is powder from America.

You can't get it in a drugstore.

From America? I guess it

can't hurt. -Of course not.

What are you doing down there?

- I've lost my watch.

If you see a Rolex engraved

with the words:

'To my brother for his 19th

birthday, sis Olga', please...

I'll buy you a drink.

- Yeah, no problem.

Not through the mouth,

through the nose.

The nose? Like this?

- Yes, as hard as you can.

What are you doing in here?!

- I need to piss.

What are you doing here?!

- This is the female toilet.

I didn't know toilets had

sexes. What's your name?

Red Riding Hood. I'm taking

cakes to my Granny.

And what's in your bag?

- Cocaine. It's excellent.

I'm shaking up

decent citizens.

The movie is boring anyway.

Feel like having a drink?

A Gypsy woman said I'd meet

a handsome man in the can here.

And that I'd end up

marrying him.

Tell me the first thing

that comes to your mind.

I'd love us to spend

some time together.

You mean you want to screw me?

- Well, yeah. -Well, okay.

Have you got a boyfriend?

- You're jealous already.

Wait here,

I have to take a leak.

Did it work?

The pain's completely gone.

I feel great.

Now I can see

life's real colors.

How I've wasted my life

on trivial things.

I won't charge anyone

ever again. Free toilets!

My life's completely

changed, kid...

Completely. -Cool!

Now make the most of it.

See the world, meet new

people, new exotic religions.

Read beautiful books, listen to

classical music. Have kids!

Here's a bit more medicine.

It'll change your life.

Thanks, kid.

Hey, Tony!

Where are you, man!?

Listen, I've found

the woman of my dreams.

She can change the world.

I don't even need to piss now.

It's a miracle, Tony!

Mickey, buddy, hold your

horses. Think it over. Bye.

Miracle? Fire is a miracle!

There you go. - Wait! Keep

your money. No charge!

I've had a vision.

God gave me a second chance!

Give the money

to someone needy.

Some of us can still

pay for a piss.

What's with that painting?

Did you steal it?

Look who's talking!

This is Sodom and Gomorrah!

It can't go on like this!

I'm quitting the toilet!

I'm off to a monastery!

I'm out of here!

We talk about progress and

the future of our country,

but in fact we're just

one big sh*t!

There's no one to slam down

their fist and to say:

'Enough is enough!'

Everything's falling apart!

You who spend your money

on drinks and whores,

have you ever given a cent

to a beggar, or shown mercy

to your fellow creatures?

Where will your souls go?

Communists!

Hypocrites!

Long live Stalin!

What a character!

I can't go home,

my father will kill me.

For the sake of our marriage

don't bullshit.

It leads to confusion

in nuptial relationships...

Is your dad that tough?

When he was my age

he killed lots of people.

A Partisan, eh?

Sis! It's late. What will

Dad say? -I don't give a damn.

Yeah, then he'll

spank me again.

You're unique, eh? -I'm

going to run this guy over.

It pisses me off the way they

think they own the street.

Step on it!

Did you see that hit and run?

Should I get his licence plate,

boss, to give it to the police?

You idiot!

We're the bad guys.

That's my third.

They still haven't caught me!

What have you done, sister?

- I'm not your sister.

I'm your wife-to-be.

- I still haven't proposed to you.

As long as you know

who you're dealing with.

Anyway, you're an accomplice.

I didn't want to. -Why do you

do things you don't want?

You're not one of those dull,

boring, ironic types, are you?

That was a man!

- He was old, ugly and mean!

How do you know he wasn't

some really great guy?

Only God can judge

that sort of thing.

God's lost sight

of the criteria.

I killed him,

someone will kill me...

Equilibrium will once again

be established in the universe.

The end of the world is near.

Really?

So, you'll marry me? -Sure,

the prophecy must come true.

Didn't I say it might

be a bad day?

Mister?

Are you alive?

Shall I read your palm?

Bobby, man! I always sh*t

myself when I come in here.

Well, do you think you

can just walk in?

Do we have to risk our lives

to have a drink in this bar?

Why do you drink

when it's bad for you?

You're crazy enough even

when you're sober, Bobby.

Come on. House rules.

Three, four, go!

You always beat me when

it's the three of us.

Put this somewhere safe, so

Tony doesn't set the bar on fire.

Don't worry,

I'll take good care of it.

Now let's have some music!

- No!

How can you listen to that,

Bobby? -Hard Serbian rock!

So, what are we drinking?

What are we drinking?

We've been drinking the same

thing together for 20 years.

And me personally since

I was in my mother's womb.

Do you know what my

mother used to say to me?

'Son, I drank to make

a man out of you.'

That's mothers for you!

Even when they drink,

they think of their kids.
