Black Cat, White Cat

A careening ensemble comedy bursting at the seams with music and visual energy, Black Cat, White Cat is Emir Kusturica’s madcap tribute to the marginalised and dispossessed. The film follows the twisted romances and small-time schemes of a community of Roma who live from moment to moment on the banks of the Danube: rival patriarchs Grga (Sabri Sulejman) and Zarije (Zabit Memedov), hapless would-be hijacker Matko (Bajram Severdžan), manic gangster Dadan (Srđan Todorović). Building to a heady climax at a shotgun wedding, Kusturica’s love for the grotesque and the anarchic is on full display, accompanied all the way by a turbocharged folk soundtrack.
