Rhythm of a Crime
Rhythm of a Crime (Croatian: Ritam zločina) is a Yugoslav film released in Yugoslavia in 1981, directed by Zoran Tadić, starring Ivica Vidović and Fabijan Šovagović. It is based on "Dobri duh Zagreba", a short story by Pavao Pavličić.
In 1999, a poll of Croatian film critics found it to be one of the best Croatian films ever made.
Old houses in Zagreb are destroyed in order to build new, bigger blocks. A teacher who lives in one of these houses allows a stranger to share his home with him. The stranger has a fascination with statistics, and claims he can predict crimes based on statistical analyses. When a predicted murder did not occur, the stranger is adamant that the whole town will suffer unless a balance is achieved - and he leaves.
