A triumph of mise en scene mated to a comic vision that keeps topping its own hyperbole. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- Brilliant, outrageous filmmaking. Underground is touching, hilarious, and new.

Underground is a bizarre, often repellent anti-war parable that takes forever to state the obvious but hits some scattered high notes on the way. Full Review

...Kusturica's ideas and images are undeniably potent...

Rating: 4/4 -- Kusturica takes us from wacky farce to harrowing grief to lyrical fantasy to bloody horror. To ignore any side of Underground is to do it injustice. Full Review

A brave attempt to make art out of horror, sense out of chaos. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Acknowledged as the Bosnian director Emir Kusturica's masterpiece, Underground is a hallucinogenic comic romp through Yugoslavia's troubled history over 50 years.

Product Description:

A surreal, absurd mix of politics, sex, fantasty, black comedy and brutality that has been widely hailed as one of the decade's most exhilerating cinematic efforts. During World War II, a pair of friends in the Serb resistance hide in an intricate cellar. Years later, the war is over but the lies and deceptions continue. Winner of the award for Best Film at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival.
