|The Marathon family
Director: Slobodan Sijan
The story takes place between two wars. In family Topalovic, consisted
of five generations of men, there's a conflict, because the youngest
one doesn't want to be undertaker. He is convinced that there are
better jobs, supported by his girlfriend and best friend. The three
of them are crazy about movies, and want to try their luck. The girl's
father, with whom Topalovics cooperate (he digs out the dead-man's
coffins, and Topalovics are using them) comes in conflict with them.
Since his girl was cheating on him with his best friend, the youngest
Topalovic murders her. He returns to his family as a criminal.
They accept him as their leader now, a new generation representative
who will take inconsideration as basic morality measure.
