Switchboard Operator (1967)

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Drama
Release Date:January 1, 1967
Running time:70 minutes
Director:Duöan Makavejev

Description: This tragicomedy is the second feature for Dusan Makavejev, the most celebrated Yugoslavian director of the 1960s. Included in this montage of stories is an erotic love scene, a strudel recipe, rat catching, and a graphic autopsy of a female victim. The plot concerns a love affair between a switchboard operator and a rat catcher. In most of his films, Makavejev takes a decidedly anti-Stalinist stance and champions the causes of individual political and sexual freedom. The director claims that style is not as important, as any kind of feature can tell the story. One of his favorite tools is using the element of psychological surprise.~ Dan Pavlides, All Movie Guide
