Lordan Zafranovic – Vecernja zvona AKA Evening Bells (1986)

Trials and tribulations of a Croatian Communist intellectual in the turbulent years before, during and after WW2.

Evening Bells (Croatian: Večernja zvona) is a 1986 Yugoslav film directed by Lordan Zafranović. It is based on Vrata od utrobe, a novel by Mirko Kovač.

Screenwriter Mirko Kovac adapted his novel about the self-aggrandizing Tomislav (Rade Serbedzija. Starting with Tomislav’s childhood, when he plays practical jokes on the nuns at his elite school, or spies on his brother and his wife in their bedroom, he is already offensive and secretive. These traits continue when he grows up and starts an affair with his brother’s wife, and marries someone else in spite of that affair. He ends up tormenting the woman he marries through a misunderstanding, though he survives World War II thanks to her efforts. After the war he goes into politics and continues in much the same vein as in his private life. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

The film was boycotted by Eastern Bloc. Reason – criticism of the communist regime.
