Zlatko Kovač, a provincial professor without any real ambitions, gets a job in one of the highschools in Zagreb and moves to Zagreb with his mother. Soon, he finds out that he got transferred to the big city for a reason. Professor Tot, whose job Zlatko got, died under suspicious conditions. In the new school Kovač meets an array of weird characters and soon finds a corpse in the teachers’ lounge. The police unsuccesfully investigates this case, and Kovač unexpectedly discovers a connection between the two corpses and an event that took place ten years ago. The school is busy with preparations for their 30th anniversary celebration while Kovač searches for the murderer and sets a trap for him.
Zlatko Vitez (Zlatko Kovač), Koraljka Hrs, Miodrag Krivokapić, Mustafa Nadarević, Zvonimir Lepetić, Dragutin Klobučar, etc.
Country of production:
Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia (Socialist Republic of Croatia)
Ivan Kušan, Pavao Pavličić, Branko Ivanda (based on Pavao Pavličić’s novel Stroj za maglu)
Having previously shown a tendency toward the fantastic, in this film Branko Ivanda introduced elements of the criminal genre and social criticism. However, none of these elements function convincingly enough and Zločin u školi seems like a mere echo of similar attempts by Zoran Tadić.
