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.
Quite insane -- but in a good way.
- Black Cat, White Cat review by MS
The other two review said the film was quite crazy, and they're right. The plot -- such as it was -- was rambling and weird, and yet it kept your attention all the way through. The characters were attractive and convincingly human, navigating their way through the mad onrush of events. And the music was wonderful. I didn't expect to even like it -- but I loved it.
