Do You Remember Dolly Bell? (Serbo-Croatian: ), filmed 1981, is the first feature film directed by Emir Kusturica. Showing early signs of the stylistic flair that Kusturica was to effectively deploy in later works, it is a coming of age story. The film was selected as the Yugoslav entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 54th Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.
A young man grows up in Sarajevo in the 1960s, under the shadow of his good, but ailing father, and gets attracted by the world of small-time criminals
Set over a single early-1960s summer in one of Sarajevos neighbourhoods, the plot follows the fortunes of a school boy nicknamed Dino (Slavko Stimac). Simultaneous to being enthralled with a life that flashes before his eyes and ears in the local cinema and youth centre (where, among other things, he watches Alessandro Blasettis Europa di notte and listens to Adriano Celentanos "24 Mila Baci"), Dino gets a taste of the world inhabited by local thugs and petty criminals. However, when he is rewarded via a liaison for providing a hiding place for prostitute "Dolly Bell" (Ljiljana Blagojevic), his world is turned upside down as he falls in love with her.
