Casting by Radovanovic, Goran

Sex, survival, Serbia, pantyhose?what do they have in common? In 'Casting' women have come to audition for a part in a pantyhose commercial which has as its slogan - The most beautiful step in Europe- Panties for every occasion. Euro-look finally in Serbia too! As 'Casting' progresses however, these women become characters in a documentary reflecting the radical changes in Serbian society today. Although they are good students and daughters, the girls slowly turn towards morally corrupt and darker layers of a society in transition.

Human Interest
Although the film appears to be a rather 'light', even sexy documentary about contemporary life in Belgrade where the young face many choices, it is deeply rooted in the misery and moral mud of present-day Serbia. Analytical but not dry, this well-crafted, exciting film, observes social change with compassion and understanding.

Controling Idea
I earn for one night what my mum gets as a monthly pension, one of the girls emphasizes. After the war Serbian society chooses no other way to recover but to blindly follow the market economy and create a quasi-Serbian way of democracy. The younger generation has elevated material success and wealth as new icons to worship.
