(Black Cat, White Cat; Crna macka, beli macor)
By Emir Kusturica
Felliniesque farce set among the Gypsies and gangsters who roam a dilapidated stretch of the Danube, The film couldn’t be farther from the images of wartorn Balkans you’d expect. Over the top, baroque, fun and poetically uplifting.
A reckless, explosive production not bored with life, love and the possibilities of cinema (unlike most recent European ‘art’ film productions).
Caution: manic, carnivalesque style that could be exhausting for some people!
