Synopsis

In the midst of war, Marko and Blacky attain riches dealing arms to resistance fighters. When things get too hot, they move into a cellar packed with refugees who manufacture the weapons. With Blacky convinced he should remain hidden until the war ends, Marko conspires to leave him there.

Our take

This historical fiction from auteur Emir Kusturica is an expansive masterpiece, winning the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 1995. An exhilarating and absurdist satire, the film earns its reputation as one of the most controversial yet vital political tales in cinema.
