Widowhood of Karolina Žašler (1976) Yugoslavian Medium Insert Poster
Milena Zupančič gives a tragi-comedic masterclass as a widow yearning for children. In taking up with a young man who subsequently commits suicide, she desperately begins to find new partners, while attracting the disapproval of her staid neighbours in a rural Yugoslavia coming to terms with the modern world.
Zupančič's major roles were Widowhood and Blossoms in Autumn / Cvetje v jeseni (1973) both directed by Matjaž Klopčič, and both dealing with the encroachment of the modern world on centuries-old traditions and societies.
