Trivia:

Goofs:
Continuity: When Zare escapes from Dadan on the ladder, Dadan catches him by the right ear. In the next shot he is holding Zare's left ear.



User Review

I wish I could give this a 1000...BRAVO!!!

Rating: 10/10

This movie, like Underground, is so brilliant, so inventive, so full of ideas & images & imagination & feeling & humanity & humor that beside it american/hollywood movies are like campbell's chicken noodle soup, with too much water, all of them, no exception. Kusturica has to be the greatest living film director & the greatest director in at least 50 years. One would have to go back to Renoir & Rules of the Game to find a film with the energy & brilliance of Black Cat White Cat. Bravo, Kusturica. BRAVO!!!
