GUCHA - DISTANT TRUMPET

Germany / Serbia / Bulgaria / Austria, 2006 (MIFF 2007, Jaguar International Panorama)

Director: Milic Dusan

GUCHA - DISTANT TRUMPET

Prvi Igrani Film o Srpskoj Trupi (First movie about Serbian Trumpet) An ambitious young trumpeter, Romeo, falls in love with a freckled maiden, Juliana, whose father also happens to be a trumpeter. The father does not approve of this love match, unimpressed with Romeo's “black” face. The young suitor must stay away unless - on one condition - he can beat the father at the Gucha Trumpet Festival. Marko Markovic, in his debut as Romeo, lets loose in the film's wild musical showdown. He was a soloist and arranger in his father's (Boban Markovic) band, a five-time winner at the real Gucha. Winner of the Audience Award at this year's Sofia Film Festival. “Toe-tapping, tongue-in-cheek… a wickedly fun, lowbrow spoof on Romeo and Juliet satirizing racism while it plays up a storm.” - Variety
