The film is filled with grotesque slapstick, boisterous drunkenness, body horror, and thwarted criminality — all accompanied by the bouncy, life-giving music that inspired this lunacy in the first place.
Some names in cinema, just by pronoucing them, imediatelly create exhilaration in our minds, an agitation, a tone. They evoce a specific way of creating motion in the big screen, of portraying human fauna, of making emotions and narratives something really extraordinary and outrageously interesting, new and worth paying atention, again. Like Fellini, Wes Anderson, Kusturica. Delirious and fun. Kusturica. Kust...
The popularity of this movie just shows how many people are amused with such comedic heights like golden teeth of a Gypsy, fridge that falls into river, and Srđan Todorović making stupid facial expressions. Fill it with horrible Balkanoid music with lyrics about ladybugs (!) and you get the pig slops for mediocre masses and wannabe critics.
Kusturica inspires me so much. As exuberant and joyous as his other films, but more light hearted. The apocalyptic weight that usually kicks in halfway through doesn't here, and that's not a problem. Black Cat, White Cat is just a jubilant comedy full of color and life and of course a catchy soundtrack! I wish a brass band would follow me around in real life like they do in Kusturica's movies!
Pretty much every character in here is fucking bonkers, even when your not focused on the main characters just look around and see what everyone else is up to particular the singer who removes a hammered in nail with her ass. And that alone is what you need to enjoy the ride of gypsy gangsters and pit bull terriers, the music alone is something I've seen and heard on nights out is a testament to the films popularity
živio balkanski film!
there are a few filmmakers with such an ability to give this much life to their work.
and not to mention to put together so much ugliness, filth and simplicity and create something beautiful.
There aren't better stories at describing the lively freakish characters in the warm human core of the Gypsy family. It is self-indulgent sure, but you quickly get over it as it takes a place in your heart without you even realising it.
Special, never boring, non-stop entertainment, unique story line. Emir Kursturica's films are definitely worth giving a watch. Loved this movie, so much fun and so funny and wild, so full of life. Much like Fellini's films.
