Marshal Tito's Spirit (Croatian: Maršal) is a 1999 Croatian film directed by Vinko Brešan. It was Croatia's submission to the 73rd Academy Awards for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, but was not accepted as a nominee.[1][2]


The film centers on the Croatian island of Vis in 1998. During the funeral of a local Partisan, his Partisan comrades see the ghost of Marshal Josip Broz Tito. Soon the news spreads around and also other people claim to see the Marshal's ghost. Soon, the policeman Stjepan (Dražen Kühn) arrives on the island and decides to investigate the whole situation. Meanwhile the mayor Luka (Ivo Gregurević) smells a business opportunity and begins to organize communist-era events to attract tourism. However, local Partisan veterans of the 7th Dalmatian Brigade, led by Marinko (Ilija Ivezić) decide to take arms and control the town, turning it into the communist-era shape.
