Synopsis

Developed from Emir Kusturica’s short film 'Our Life', this film is an epic three-part story, with Kusturica in the central role of Kosta. In the first section, he plays a quixotic figure, riding a donkey and delivering milk across military lines during a civil war. In the second, he meets a beautiful Italian-Serbian (Monica Bellucci), embarking on a passionate, forbidden and ultimately tragic love affair. In the final section, he is a monk collecting rocks as part of a Sisyphean task. Channeling magical realism, the film combines folk elements and animal imagery with the mechanical brutality of modern warfare. (LFF brochure)
