It's like a novel written entirely in italics, every single sentence of which ends with an exclamation mark. As there are people of whom it's said that they don't know their own strength, Kusturica is a film-maker who doesn't know his own brilliance.

There's a surprising warmth and even a little optimism behind Kusturica's gallows humor.

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 ridiculous and self-indulgent, but Kusturica is so skilful, conjuring up one sweeping, sumptuous set-piece after another, that you can't help but go along for the ride.

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

Based on true events, this deeply involving film is not only a terrific story but it's also very timely in the issues it examines.

A colorful, frenetic mixture of slapstick and folklore that stands a good chance of delighting arthouse audiences the world over.

It is as though Four Weddings And A Funeral had been reimagined by Fellini with a cast of crazy Balkan rogues and a background chorus of farmyard animals.

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

It's a highly enjoyable, fast-paced comedy about warring gypsy families who are after both money and true love (isn't that what all comedies are about?).

If you can tap into its twisted vibe, it's a lot of fun.

This latest from writer-director Emir Kusturica eventually grows on one not through its relentless laughs, but by its unexpected sentiment about romance and friendship.

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.

Salutes the irrepressible energies of love and friendship in hard times.
