|The beauty of vice
Genre: Social film
Director: Zivko Nikolic
In remote Montenegrian villages, it is a custom that a husband kills his
wife with a hammer over a loaf of bread, if she is proven unfaithful.
In such environment, a young married couple lives, bound for eternal
fidelity. They live in poverty, and gladly accept an invitation
from a man who left for the sea coast, in search for easy money, to
follow his example. He gets a job in saltwork factory, and she starts
to work as a cleaning lady in nudist camp. Traditionally brought
up, she is terrified with nudity, especially when she is cleaning the
apartment of two young foreigners who are amused by her confusion.
Under their influence, she starts freeing her chained sensuality.
