Cannes 1995 - Palme d'Or
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
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
...UNDERGROUND asserts its own feverish surrealism...
...Engaging and exhilarating....[Manojlovic] is superbly comic....Ristovski has the wild-eyed brute appeal of a silent film comic...
...Lunatic epic....Rarely has absurdism made more sense... -- Rating: A
Rating: 5/5 -- Brilliant, outrageous filmmaking. Underground is touching, hilarious, and new.
F5 (Wichita, KS)
Rating: 9/10 -- Furiously inventive, overlong, overwrought, battering, mesmerizing, magical. From an outsider's perspective, the massive project of Kusturica's convulsive carnivalesque celebrates the vivacity of the survivor. (His countrymen may know better.) Full Review
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.
