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!!!
