This weekend I spent the afternoons watching some of the films of the Serbian film maker Emir Kusturica, one of my favorite film directors. An interesting feature of Emir Kusturica´s films is that the Roma people are often depicted, sometimes as protagonists of his Balkan comedies, and sometimes, as the driving force behind the plot which always harbors a trace of magical realism.  Among his most well known films are:  Time of the Gypsies, Underground, Black Cat, White Cat, among many others.

Here is an abstract of the most recent film.  What do you think?

Quizás porque los Gitanos son de origen Indio;las películas de Emir Kusturica tienen todas un aire a bollywood.

Tienes toda la razón, se nota en el ritmo de las secuencias,el mal aparece siempre por la mano del hombre, el volumén sonoro es importante y abundan los temas musicales. Además podemos destacar lo colorido de las vestimentas de los actores y que en ambas películas bailan y hay mucho movimiento.
