      Serge L This comedy made a lot of sense to me. Very well done and believable story of the boy somewhat rebel of his family and of the group he went with for the love he had. Well, he ends up winning and leading the whole group except his lovely ex-girlfriend. And gets a personalised invitation by Tito himself with his group, the Tito marchgoers.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member All in all, one great movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Director Goran Markovic's semi-autobiographical story is that of Zoran, who loves three things: food, orphan Majka, and "Comrade Tito", the leader of Yugoslavia. Zoran wins the chance to join Majka in a student march to Tito's homeland, but the excursion challenges the value of his passions. Sweet and funny, the film is almost ideal (some language and situations aside) for children. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member <a href="http://cooltext.com"><img src="http://images.cooltext.com/2076996.png" alt="My Review" /></a></a> <a href="http://s955.photobucket.com/albums/ae34/radboviemiot/?action=view¤t=Tito.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i955.photobucket.com/albums/ae34/radboviemiot/Tito.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> As most children in Yugoslavia remember the time hardly imagining life without their great national leader, "Comrade Tito", 10-year-old Zoran becomes obsessed with him as he participates in composition contest that wins him a native land march. He claims that in his work he loves Tito more than his parents who become desperate. Unaccustomed to independent living and harassed by the teacher, he fails and his life changes. If there was a good movie that was memorably known as its last before the glory of the former Yugoslavia was destroyed by civil war in the early '90s then <i>Tito And Me</i> was it. Released in March 23, 1993, this semi-autobiography was directed by Goran Markovic uses dream sequences to spark the imagination of our character and historical footage to help the viewer experience a life never known. Dimitrie Vojnov played the lead role very well that, as a child actor, with his confusion over admiration he would later learn that worshiping idols is a naive practice. I thought that its portrayal of using the cult of personality is hilariously foolish whilst it was common as religion in communist countries. As a well produced coming-of-age film <i>Tito And Me</i> is recommended for fans of foreign cinema especially for those who want to experience nostalgia of a country they, unless they happen to be in Serbia, never lived in. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Insightful, beautiful and sensitive. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews
