“Black Cat White Cat“ is one of the best films by celebrated domestic director, Emir Kusturica. The story follows the smuggler Matko, Gypsy who lives with his son Zaret on the coast of the Danube. One day he decides to smuggle a train carrying gas between Belgrade and Turkey. In order to do this, Matko borrows money, however, the job ends unsuccessfully - he was overtaken by young gangster Dadan. Matko therefore becomes a Dadan debtor who proposes that his son Zara marry Dadan's miniature sister ‘Ladybug’. The newlyweds do not want this wedding and the phenomenal story follows the chaotic organization of this arranged marriage, and the comical situations that are happening throughout... This is an ingenious romantic comedy that talks about love and friendship, on the sidelines of a society with disrupted value systems. Rarely does a movie excite both the audience and the critics, and this cult masterpiece is just such a movie.
