Barking on stars


Zdravko Sotra

Short description:
Plot is set to small provincial town at the beginning of sixties. Heroes of this funny story are teachers of an provincial high-school and their class IV-2. Their adventures are understandable and close to everyone who remembers teenager's life, but yet very personal. Leading character Mihailo Knezevic distinguishes himself with spirt, intelligence and knowledge above other pupils, sometimes even professors. He doesn't have problem with learning, his problem is a girl from the class whose haert he consistently tries to conquer. His main competitor is his brother, guy who already makes money, so he doesn't need school. And there is a student who boasts with strength and frantically trained by professor of physical culture for boxing champion until the match in the capitol when he returns blue and disgraced. One student is necessary "golden kid" for professors but toady for classmates. Majority are those who meager knowledge try to compensate with a line of tricks and quips. Specially picturesque are professors characters which are, each of them on their own way, a little bit "twisted". Nervous principal doesn't know who is worse, unbearable students or "twisted professors". "Students will leave tomorrow, but professors are staying" he complains.
