A bitter-humorous story about one woman and one country.

The Gadget, 2012
short feature film

The main hero of the film The Gadget is Detlić, a creative, bright, but also highly moral man. He is an artist (musician, percussionist at the Opera) but also a father and a family man. Trapped by the existential problems that are beginning to reflect on his marriage, during the development of this bitter-sweet story, Detlić is a bit absurd about how to survive in the difficult conditions of the general crisis in modern Serbia. The film talks about the absurdity of a society in which culture and ethics are no longer desirable human traits; in which empathy and care for anyone who does not belong to the narrowest circle of blood or business ties are directly detrimental both to existence
and to personal reputation and positioning in society.
