Almost completely unavailable in the U.S., this farcical comedy is hard to resist. Region 2 (European) DVDs are available, but the discs won’t play on most standard U.S. players.
Directed by Emir Kusturica (winner of the Palm D’or for his film “Underground”), this Yugoslavian film is available with English, Dutch, or French subtitles. Life among gypsies of the Danube is the theme, and those ways of life are so different from our own as to seem completely unearthly. Humor that would have been common in the Americas fifty to a hundred years ago will make you laugh harder than any contemporary comedy.
Not to be missed should you ever have the opportunity to see this film!
