Monday or Tuesday (Serbo-Croatian: Ponedjeljak ili utorak) is an acclaimed 1966 Yugoslav drama film directed by Vatroslav Mimica starring Slobodan Dimitrijević. The film’s title is a famous quote from Virginia Woolf’s 1919 work Modern Fiction (and the title of her 1921 short story collection) in which she described her approach to writing: “Examine for a moment an ordinary mind on an ordinary day. The mind receives a myriad impressions—trivial, fantastic, evanescent, or engraved with the sharpness of steel. From all sides they come, an incessant shower of innumerable atoms; and as they fall, as they shape themselves into the life of Monday or Tuesday.” Read More »
