    • Synopsis
    • After many years of hard isolation Belgrade has opened again, ready to accept numerous tourists, businessmen and curious people from all over the world. What happens when foreigners and local people meet? Practical Guide to Belgrade with Singing and Crying is a contemporary romantic comedy about the trials of finding the right person, told through four completely different love stories. At the beginning, Stefan, a young and arrogant Belgrade driver, who believes in nobody and nothing, falls in love with Silvie the French chanson singer, who has been controlling herself for far too long. She is on the verge of a nervous breakdown and for the first time she will do everything that she has dreamed of. However, Melita, a concert organizer by day and a fetishist dominant lady is disappointed because her slave Brian, an American diplomat, is not actually a person who he tells he is. When Melita leaves hotel, the hotel maid Jagoda, too beautiful for somebody who drinks too much, decides to put fidelity of Orhan, German businessman of Turkish origin, to the test. Instead of returning to Germany, Orhan unexpectedly discovers the roots of Turkish culture in Belgrade and falls in love with Jagoda. At the end, Jagoda’s friend Djurdja, Serbian policewoman, on the day of her wedding with Mato, Croatian policeman, confesses everything she has been hiding from him. Unity in Diversity is the motto of European Union. Although we have many conditions to fulfill for entrance into the EU, by making love to guests from abroad, Belgraders are at least one step closer to Europe.
