Red Coloured Grey Truck
Srđan Koljević

Synopsis

June 1991, the last day of peace in Yugoslavia...
Ratko, a totally colour-blind Bosnian guy, steals a truck for a joyride.
Suzana, a Belgrade city girl, discovers she is pregnant and decides to take off to Dubrovnik before her abortion term.
He almost runs her over... and they end up travelling together.
Ethnic war is imminent – but the colour-blind 'moron' and the hot-tempered city girl cannot distinguish the differences among the opposing groups.
When they get deeper into trouble, she wants to go home – but it's too late: the 'moron' is in love with her.
There is no way back – she has to discover that 'love is a miracle' and that 'colours mean nothing'...

director's statement

A Balkan road-movie, set on the Last Day of ex-Yugoslavia, combines drama, comedy and romance in the form of an offbeat love story... A simple movie at a first glance. On a deeper level, colour-blindness as one of the “autistic” main character’s features and his colour-blind “philosophy of life” are a metaphor and a mockery of the ethnic divisions which led to war. I believe that this deeply personal film offers an unusual and ironic view of serious issues.
