Abstract for a feature-lenght docu-fiction by mediainmotion.de
In 1969 Jozip Broz a.k.a.Tito and Bob Guccione, owner of the Penthouse Magazine, met on Titos private archipelago “Brioni”. They drove around these sub-tropical islands with the pink cadillac convertible, which Tito got as a a present by J.F. Kennedy. Between the exotic aninals like giraffees, lions, elephants, gazellas and others they spent a great time. Later in the evening, after some bottles of excellent rakija, they spoke about common future plans. Guccione admired the splendid atmosphere and the beauty of the yugoslav mediterrenean coast. There was only missing a casino, So they came to the idea to build the first one in the communistic world. They both agreed on a never written contract. It stated, that Tito will build a bridge to the island of Krk and an international airport, while Guccione´s part was the erection of a casino-hotel plus the delivery of enough female pets. What first looked like a weird fantasy became later reality in the complex of “Haludovo” with it´s central 5-stars luxury “Hotel Palace” in a Ken Adam like set-up design for a “James Bond” film. They both finished the day with a last bottle of rakija and woke up the next morning with a hang-over.
