HOW TO BECOME A HERO
KAKO POSTATI HEROJ
Serbia 2007, 79 min
In the summer of 2005, the 40-year-old Serbian filmmaker Matičević finds himself in a typical midlife crisis. He feels a failure as a filmmaker, overweight and out of shape. Suddenly he sees a report about the Rotterdam Marathon and becomes inspired - he decides to participate in the Belgrade Marathon the following year. He consults a personal trainer, goes on a diet, and starts exercising. Despite the sarcasm of his family and friends, his condition keeps slowly improving, he loses weight, and his outlook on life becomes brighter. Gradually, running the marathon becomes a metaphor for daily life in post-war Serbia.
