Shot in only nine takes, this sharp and inventive black comedy consistently transcends its formal constraints. A lonely composer commits suicide in his apartment in Belgrade. Alarmed by the gunshots, Aca and his neighbour Vesko arrive but decide to wait for the police. Soon other characters appear – an undertaker, paramedics and, eventually, the police, who have been stuck in traffic. The whole film is presented via a webcam set up by the composer before his death, with the characters entering the ‘set’ through a single entrance. Unaware of the camera catching their unguarded behaviour, the men struggle to remember the composer’s name and admire his décor, wives come and go while the representatives of officialdom exhibit a blind indifference. Inspired by his own experience – a neighbour was found dead – director Miroslav Momčilović has produced a compelling commentary on an absurd reality.

Bill T (ca) wrote: An interesting and, dare I say it, better-then-the-original follow-up to Blacula. Where the first was essentially set-up, this is dynamite pay-off. William Marshall and his team of phantom vampires are generally creepy this time (thanks to a director who's been there before) and the story presents an interesting take on the vampire story with Voodoo elements combined. Pam Grier is an expert on the occult, and agrees, with some heavy reservations mind you, to take on Mr. Blacula and tries to rid his little problem with the help of voodoo dolls! If this sounds silly, it probably is, but it's presented quite interestingly and with a lot of stylle that the cheesiness isn't too obvious. Quite a little surprise.

The film starts to drag after that as she tries to hide her middle class from her new male companion. The film culminates in a pretty amusing dinner scene where nothing is as Alice hopes it would be. I don't think this film holds up quite as well as others from the era. The class and society commentaries are a bit heavy-handed and dated. The themes tend to repeat themselves throughout the film which makes it a bit tedious. And the ending seemed just a bit too neat for my tastes. But there are moments that are highly endearing and entertaining. Katherine Hepburn is always a delight to watch and this early performance is magnificent. The relationships are quite strong and I enjoyed the chemistry between Alice and her family and Alice and her new suitor (Fred MacMurray in a refreshingly non-Disney role). Overall, the opening party scene and the final dinner scene are worth the rental, it's just the stuff in between that's a bit of a bore.
