This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Kusturica is a lot of fun, as always. Life Is a Miracle has all the elements we've come to expect from him: dazzling color, slapstick, farm animals, brass bands, bawdy humor, plenty of copulation, and war. It's a bit more polished and less intense than his other works, but still a great effort.
Trying to translate the titles in German may be understood and/or tolerated upto a point. But at least put it right! Life is not a wound!! And in case the editor is trying to make an irony, this is really a very cheap one.
