A good movie

In the 90's, Kusturica was one of the most important directors in the world and I was a big fan of his work. Unfortunately, we haven't heard much from him during the 00's and that's too bad. Anyway, back in the 90’s, after making his only US production so far starring no one less than Johnny Depp (it’s called ‘Arizona Dream’ and it is quite marvelous), Kusturica went back to (ex-)Yugoslavi... read more

Description: The story starts from an underground manufacture of weapons of Belgrade, during the WWII, and evolves into fairly surreal situations. The black marketeer who smuggles the weapons to partisans forgets to mention to the workers that the war is over, and they keep producing. 50 years later, they become suspicious, and break out of their ...

“In the 90's, Kusturica was one of the most important directors in the world and I was a big fan of his work. Unfortunately, we haven't heard much from him during the 00's and that's too bad. Anyway, back in the 90’s, after making his only US production so far starring no one less than Johnny Depp (it’s called ‘Arizona Dream’ and it is quite marvelous), Kusturica went back to (ex-)Yugoslavia to make what many consider his magnum opus and, for the second time around, the Serbian director won the prestigious Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival. Eventually, even though I did like it at the time (I saw it in the movie theater when it was released), I wasn’t exactly blown away. I guess I was just too young at the time (I think I must have been 15-16 years old when I first saw it) a” read more

"Emir Kusturica twisted epic about an underground weapons manufacturer in Yugoslavia during the World War II. The whole story is so absurd and surreal that even though it's pretty dark, you can only laugh to it. The main characters and their actors are brilliant. "

"03.08. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Emir Kusturica A ridiculous, farcical, visual, ingenious work. Reminded me of Fellini in its tightly orchestrated near-chaoticness and absurd humour. It was hard to get into first due to the overacting but once you realize it's intentional, you're in for a real treat. I know next to nothing about the history of Serbia/Yugoslavia but now I want to know more just to understand this film better. I get that it's a film mostly about a country under the influence "

"27.9.2011 Kusturickan elokuvassa esitetään omaperäisellä tavalla Jugoslavian suht värikästä historiaa toisesta maailmansodasta 90-luvun alkuun saakka. Elokuva on tyyliltään musta komedia ja sen eri hahmot symboloivat tiettyjä piirteitä Jugoslavian historiasta, kuten Serbia-nationalismia, kommunismia yms. Elokuvassa kritisoidaan etenkin omaperäisesti kommunistista aikaa näyttämällä ihmisiä asumassa kellarissa. Jotkut hahmot luulevat, että vieläkin taistellaan fasismia vastaan"

"The film satirises the history of Yugoslavia since the World War II. It's also a story about frienship between two mans."
