Movie Info

When gypsy grifter Matko (Bajram Severdzan) is abruptly swindled by his own partner, he is unable to pay the large debt he suddenly owes. As an alternative form of payment, Matko forces his adolescent son Zare (Florijan Ajdini) into an arranged marriage with his partner's midget sister, Afrodita (Salija Ibraimova). However, both Zare and Afrodita find the marriage objectionable, and their attempts to escape the situation lead to a series of unpredictable comic escapades.

  • As with some of Fellini's late works, the energy and inventiveness, not to mention the juicy vulgarity, are so consistent in Black Cat, White Cat that you feel you can slice into the material at almost any point.

  • It's anything but subtle but the magnetism of the cast and sheer exuberance of the storytelling make this fairly irresistible.

    April 10, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A colorful, frenetic mixture of slapstick and folklore that stands a good chance of delighting arthouse audiences the world over.

    March 26, 2009
  • This is storytelling on the hoof, rambling, self-indulgent, but with enough warmth and humour to overcome its own excesses.

  • The film's most memorable images all seem to be either irrelevant diversions (like the pig eating a car) or reruns of previous greatest hits.

Audience Reviews for Crna macka, beli macor

  • Jan 30, 2014
    A coke-snorting small-town gangster offers to let a scheming loser out of a debt if his son marries the mobster's daughter. Heavy on plot and with lots of quirky characters, this plays like a script Leonard Elmore might have written if he's been born a Bosnian gypsy.

    Pretty scenes of the lives of gypsies on the banks of the Danube. More quirky Yugoslavian culture from Kusturica.

    Crazy gypsys. I just love this one. It makes me happy. Involving arranged marriages, train robberies, old maffiosos with nothing but gold to chew their food with and an amazing soundtrack.

    Colourful characters and absurd scenarios, but very enjoyable.
