    I love that the surrealism brings the reality to life. Behind all the crazy stuff happening with the cocaine and the guns and the midgets there is the gypsy culture and some pure love stories.

    Black Cat, White Cat has its moments as some scenes are quite memorable, but otherwise it's a mess. Although well shot and well scored per usual for a Kusturica movie, it features all of his worst tendencies - ridiculous, implausible plot points, annoying humor, underdeveloped characters and a lack of any point, themes or message to it whatsoever. He literally here copied the worst of Fellini's works.

    A true jewel - art movie and a comedy-rarely successful combo.

    This movie is really funny if you can watch a movie that doesn't speak English. Yeah the only way you can understand this movie without subtitles unless you can speak the language.

    I've had this film laying around for nearly ten years I think. Never picked it until now, still with great expectations. This is a very fresh film. As the small time hustlers, their families and connections get's into trouble with more successful gangsters things get into a real farce. Poverty and the constant search for cash is important here. So is the value of family and love. There is comedy involved everywhere, among the characters and their choices especially. The gypsy setting makes it even more interesting - all that music everywhere, it felt like "Gogol Bordello" was in my living room. It's lovely shot and it got a very original and fresh look. Very inventing and full of fresh ideas. Still, this was not as good as I was hoping for. Firstly it was way too long. It felt dragged out, since it's plotwise pretty slowly moving. Secondly it was rearly really funny and for the third matter it was a bit safe - it was never dearing enough like a movie like this shold be. A good film, a very memorable one and I'm glad I saw it. I wanted a whole lot more though. 6.5 out of 10 sun flower fields.

    Very funny, but also dense and artfully staged in its slapstick. Branka Katic has an impressive command of her body for maximum comedy.
