Emir Kusturica extremely vividly convey the mud of wartime. The relationship between the loved ones transferred with pinpoint accuracy. The betrayal is especially difficult when it from a loved one. In these difficult times for most people, some managed to live on wide leg. Struck, brilliant crank, a Scam with a time. With one hand they give people hope, with other — use it in order to fill their own pockets.

Emir transmits all the greed and meanness of the human soul, the whole dirt and the stench emanating from people are all for the sake of improvement of own life. It should be noted, people, living so many years in the underground, seems really strange — it is not is that takes place up there. They are not even assume war is over and still continue to live in the past, do not knowing. And all "thanks" to them leader.

Melody, occasionally heard on the entire film is mesmerizing! Drawn scenes, the game heroes, the Director and the whole crew who worked on the film received the relevant results of their activities.

On the one hand it had a hard time when people thought only about how them to hide from the bombing and persecution, where to find food and to sleep, but on the other hand — there was music, good food, there were dances and gatherings. In short, the picture is very contrasting.

At first, the story of two friends, Marco and Black lovers in one woman looks quite plausible, and only gradually begins to turn into an allegory. In the first part, dated 1941 year, at the time of the occupation of Yugoslavia by the Nazis, Marco hides the Black and a couple of dozen natural partisans in your basement to those escaped punishment for the murder of a German officer. Thus eliminating another opponent, forcing Marco to become the wife of their shared with the Black beloved. And "underground", Marco frighten possible violence, the entire war and show the nose of the basement. And if only war...

Up to the final third of the film remains cheerful and keeps an ironic tone, as if echoing the recklessness of the characters. In the final, the Director assembles for one holiday table all the characters — as the victims and the living. But here, like the bursting of their own genius, he is not only limited to metaphor, but adds it still a more sonorous way. A huge piece of land, on which walks a happy marriage, detached from sushi goes to an unknown direction, reflecting the most precarious illusion of human happiness in this crazy world.

Perhaps no one film of the 1990s is not showed that powerful protest against the fratricidal war. The epic parable "Underground" became the most grandiose and ambitious project Kusturica — the great poet and a barbarian. Even the most ardent fans of the Director, this picture can confuse and suppress the abundance of pushing each other's metaphors, not presented in such abundance, perhaps, not in one "the author's blockbuster" the end of the twentieth century.

It seems that the Director is not here only in itself is not fails, but if strives each new frame to surpass the previous one. He seemed to enter into competition with their past work, which had always been fine "pomp", so with the world cinema in General. Ignoring the prevailing ideas about plot, style, genre, he crosses in this work, it would seem, through all conceivable artistic boundaries.

Removing the film on the people who spend decades in the basement, the Director clearly expressed his attitude not only events on the Balkans in 1990-e years, but to the war, such. When comparing the "Underground" with other anti-war ribbons, for example, checked by the austerity of the parable "Before the rain", which appeared a year earlier in Macedonia, the film Kusturica strikes baraknett shape and this seems almost biased and poster.

With Underground "Balkan Prince" in the second time won the "Golden palm" in Kanne: 10 years ago, he already received "Father in business trip".

War kills all life, she whatever you are: young zoo worker, anti-fascist adventurer or a pregnant woman. But "the war is not war until brother to brother hand is not raise."

Poljakova the story of a small country, people living under the ground. About lie love for one woman. While the world is celebrated the victory over "fucking fascists," they all also made weapons and were afraid of the bombing, and believe that will be able to live in their country. And nobody knows what worse, what war and do excuse Marco and Natalia?

Is the sun?
Is the moon, my son


But in Yugoslavia no more of the sun and the moon. As and Yugoslavia.

Insanely heavy and great movie. It is not affect heart and the brain. And after it sorrow to tears a fabulous country, the scars of Europe and the main curse people.

Kusturica showed and told everything. But his no history of the end.
