Having returned to Yugoslavia after 17 years in exile, director Dusan Makavejev (MONTENEGRO [1981]; THE COCA-COLA KID [1985]) has also returned to political satire. The film takes place in 1920 in a fictional Eastern European town called Waldheim, "where nothing is what it seems." Arriving

in Waldheim are Svetlana (Camilla Soeberg), a beautiful young woman who is involved in a plot to assassinate a visiting king, and Avanti (Alfred Molina), a secret policeman driven by secret lust. Although everyone in town has an interest in the king--in protecting him or assassinating him--they

all seem more intent on getting into one another's knickers. MANIFESTO treats both political revolution and eroticism in a comic light; instead of making an "art film" that preaches only to the converted few, Makavejev has created an entertainment that may just tweak the minds of the masses.
