Coca Cola Kid, The (1985)

A fizzy, offbeat Aussie comedy about corporate ideals, from Serbian director Dusan Makavejev.

Eric Roberts is Becker, a go-getting Coca-Cola troubleshooter who is sent to Australia to boost sales and identifies a district where the drink has never been sold.

But his entrepreneurial efforts are hampered by an eccentric local soft drinks manufacturer (Bill Kerr) and the amorous attentions of an office secretary (Greta Scacchi).

The result is a laid-back, culture-clash whimsy full of incidental pleasures, the main one being Scacchi burning up the screen as the kooky but sexy secretary.
