|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.
