Dysfunctional doesn't begin to describe the family Paripovic. Mane and Joja are brothers living in a Croatian backwater where men have rock-throwing contests for fun. Mane's a primitive guy who fights with his neighbor and bullies his family. His addled son Todor is an amateur taxidermist. Joja is a pretty good artist when he's occasionally sober. Joja's son is Branko, a Croatian John Cusack who's comparatively sane. He's bored and depressed, but he can't seem to get out of town, even when tough guy creditors start breathing down his neck. Branko vents his frustration by playing in a pathetic punk band and promising his girlfriend they'll move to Belgrade. The Paripovic family members all live off the small pension their ailing Granny receives from America. When Granny croaks, Mane determines not to let this stop him from getting her payments. He orders Todor and Branko to steal another Granny from the old folks' home. This second Granny is in many ways more satisfying than the first. But with Branko's creditors homing in, Mane's going to defend his cash by any means possible. (In Croatian with subtitles) –B.B.

Danilo Šerbedžija has directed many television programs. 72 DAYS is a family affair since Danilo's father, veteran Yugoslav actor Rade Šerbedžija, plays Mane, and his sister Lucija plays Branko's girlfriend. We hope they get along better than the Paripovic family.
