Black Cat White Cat is a riotous mix of farce, romance and crime. Set within a community of gypsies, it tells a story of dodgy deals, family ties, young love and magical occurrences. Zare is a young man in love with the beautiful Ida, but his crooked father, having botched up a black market deal, intends to marry him off to the sister of a powerful gangster - a woman so tiny that her nickname is Ladybird. Set on the banks of the Danube, this colourful comedy is crammed with spectacle, incident and the music of Emir Kusturica's famous travelling gypsy band.
a very "happy" film

The film is very energetic and funny and full of a zest for life, and just plain mad at times. Yet you still care for the characters, and the story, in all the chaos, does have a direction to it - the director pulls it off brilliantly.
I very much enjoyed it and it also left me in a good mood for the day
Crazy, funny and fairy tale like

I loved this film! It's full of crazy characters, wonderful story telling and lively, energetic music. I need that soundtrack in my life! The story is so wonderfully enacted you could watch without the subtitles and still understand everything that happens. I would recommend this to anyone.
