Do You Remember Dolly Bell? Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Filmed in Yugoslavia, Do You Remember Dolly Bell? is set in the Sarajevo of the mid-1960s. When the government begins relaxing its hold on individual rights, many citizens don't quite know how to handle their sudden freedom. The film concentrates on the effect an onslaught of Western culture (movies, music, clothing, creature comforts) has on a previously "sheltered" group of young Slavs. The main characters also adapt to the Sexual Revolution in a series of romantic (and lightly censorable) setpieces. Originally released in 1981, Do You Remember Dolly Bell won the Golden Lion award for Best First Film at the Venice Film Festival, the first of several such honors for its director, [[Performer~P98330~Emir Kusturica~emirkusturica]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
