Montenegro, or Montenegro eller Parlor och Svin, is a 1981 Swedish black comedy movie made by Dusan Makavejev, a Yugoslavic filmmaker. Although it is a Sweedish movie, it was filmed in English. The film centers around a woman named Marilyn Jordan (Susan Anspach). Marilyn is mother to two children and wife to a rich Sweedish man named Martin (Erland Josephson). She is bored and depressed with the mundanity of her life around the house, and begins to act very strangely, displaying signs of insanity. One day she decides to entertain the family by setting the dinner tablecloth on fire, and then poisons the dog's food and urges it to eat. She is desperately looking for something thrilling. When she and her husband leave for one of his business trips, she is kept behind by security at the airport, and she misses her flight. Instead of catching the next flight to meet her husband, she befriends a group of gypsies who take her back to their club named "Zanzi-Bar." There she meets a beautiful young man by the name of Montenegro (Svetozar Cvetkovic), with whom she has a passionate fling. What will become of Marilyn now that she has escaped her depressing life at home? Will Marilyn convert to the gypsy lifestyle, and stay with Montenegro, or will she snap out of her delirium and resign to her husband and kids? The end of the story has a dark twist, watch to find out what happens!moreless
