ultimate film for YU-nostalgics

Kusturica believes (and so do I) that countries don't fall apart but are actively ripped apart. So if you want to see a short summary of Yugoslav history 1941-92 and an artist's view of why it fell apart, this movie will tell you more about it than many political books or articles. Almost everybody is portrayed with varying degrees of guilt: the communists for lying to the people, Germany for bombing Belgrade in 1941, Germany again for supplying the weapons in 1991, all nationalists... Please do not be surprised if you read negative reviews for Kusturica has stepped on many folks' feet. Invest some time, it's one of the best films in the past 15-20 years. BTW: The soundtrack is excellent, go listen.

Perfect

I rarely weep during movies. At the end of this film, however, I began to weep bitterly--not because I was saddened by the story (although it is sad), but because I knew that I could never hope to create anything as beautiful as the movie I had just watched. It is this sort of film that both inspires and frightens aspiring film makers.

The vastness of the subject....

So many complex subjects are crammed into this masterpiece. Friendship, love, personal gain, betrayal, politics, beliefs, war, peace, family, the diversity of human nature... And all of that drives the story of this movie. It isn't about neither of these things exactly, it's about how all of those things combine together under oscillating circumstances... It is a movie about our lives. Our lives as different individuals, roles that we play in it, and our life as a society. As I said in the beggining, it's crammed with complex subjects.

Many here mention that it describes Balkan region during certain period of history, and while this is partialy true, the characters and the story can be projected to any part of the world. There aren't things here that you won't grasp, just because you aren't a man/woman from Balkans.

The ending is especially good, because from my viewpoint, it represents death in a very specific and deep way.

Real, surreal, dark, funny, and most importantly, it will remain very relevant, even in distant future.

10/10
