Gypsy Froth

Emir Kusturica's new film Black Cat, White Cat, opening today in Bay Area theaters, plays like a Mack Sennett comedy colliding with French farce. It's a highly enjoyable, fast-paced comedy about warring gypsy families who are after both money and true love (isn't that what all comedies are about?). Bosnian-born Kusturica also gave us When Father Was Away on Business (1985), Arizona Dream (1993) with Johnny Depp, and the Palme D'Or winner Underground (1995).
