Life is a Miracle
Directed by Emir Kusturica, Serbia 2004
149 mins. Serbo-Croatian dialogue with English sub-titles

A riotous comedy romance from Serbian maverick Emir Kusturica (Black Cat, White Cat).  When the Bosnian War breaks out, mild-mannered Serbian station-master Luka gets caught up in smuggling, his wife runs off with a musician and his son is captured and falls in love with a Muslim.  With marauding bears, flying beds and the world's strangest football match, it's a life-affirming satire of Balkan mayhem, bursting with invention, music and anarchic energy.

What the Critics say:
"A celluloid carnival that's full to the brim with merriment, magic and mischievous animals."  (The Times)
