Slobodan Sijan The master of post-Tito comedy was the Serbian director Slobodan Sijan. Two were written by Dusan Kovacevic and photographed by Bozidar Nikolic, both with imposing casts. The first one, Ko to Tamo Peva/ Who's Singin' Over There? (1980) is set on the day when the Germans invaded, with music by Vojislav Kostic, starring Pavle Vujisic, Dragan Nikolic, Danilo Stojkovic, Aleksandar Bercek and Neda Arneric.

The second one, Maratonci Trce Pocasni Krug/ The Marathon Family (1982), is set after the assassination of king Alexander, with music by Zoran Simjanovic, starring Bogdan Diklic, Stojkovic and Vuisic, as well as the comedic duo of Seka Sablic and Zoran Radmilovic.

Sijan's Davitel Protiv Davitelja/ Strangler vs Strangler (1984), instead, feels like a parody of horror movies.
