New York Times - 03/23/1993
"...A carefully layered comedy that leaves a disturbing and ambiguous afterglow....The work of a sophisticated, comic mind..."

Product Description:

Goran Markovic's political comedy was among the last films to emerge from Yugoslavia and is a bitterly funny movie set in Belgrade, circa 1954. The film's lead character is an overweight ten year-old boy named Zoran who has a crush on his classmate Jasna and a bizarre obsession with the Communist ruler of Yugoslavia, Marshall Tito. This obsession is fueled when Zoran enters an essay contest (the topic: "Do You Love Comrade Tito and Why") that, if won, will not only allow Tito to go on a marching tour of Tito's boyhood, but do so alongside Jasna. A surprisingly breezy combination of a coming-of-age movie and a political satire, TITO AND ME is a whimsical pleasure.

Plot Synopsis:

An unusual 10-year-old boy's outlook sets the eccentric tone for this decidedly offbeat comedy.
Zoran is all the things attractive boys are not: he's fat, little, uncoordinated, plain and unhip. Through a barrage of media images, he sees the Yugoslavian leader Tito and fancies he has a personal relationship with him. The boy, in his daydreams, gives the leader tips on matters both political and personal.
Things really heat up when a girl two years Zoran's senior embarks on a trip to Tito's birthplace. Zoran finagles his way along and on their tour encounter a mysterious castle and buffoonish authority figures, among other sights.
