Description: Emir Hadzihafisbegovic stars in Croatian writer-director Rajko Grlic's madcap farce Border Post (AKA Karaula) as Lt. Pasic, a soldier in the Yugoslav army stationed on the border between Albania and Macedonia, circa 1987. Constantly drunk and dissatisfied with life, he suddenly feels a shooting pain in his gonads, and consults one of his subordinates, the enlisted medical student Siriscevic (Toni Gojanovic. Siriscevic promptly diagnoses the condition as syphilis, which Pasic, it seems, contracted from a local hooker. Pasic forces the young officer to prescribe an antidote for him, but it will take three weeks. In need of an excuse for his inability to return home and make love to his wife, Mirjana (Verica Nedeska-Trajkova), the lieutenant concocts the story of a militia conflict: an imminent attack from the Albanian army that is forcing all of the troops to remain on guard. He shuttles Siriscevic to Mirjana, to tell the woman this story, but in the interim, Pasic must back up his words by actually declaring a state of emergency - which sends soldiers into a state of near hysteria - scurrying into battle and digging trenches - and thus threatens to ignite a legitimate international crisis. Meanwhile, as Siriscevic embarks on additional errands to Mrs. Pasic, transporting one message after another in-between the woman and her husband, an affair blossoms between them, unbeknownst to the lieutenant.~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide
