Three dark periods of the history of Yugoslavia: World War I, Cold War and the Yugoslav Wars. The desintegration of a country, Kusturica’s homeland, along with the collapse of a decade long illusion, symbolised by a man that emerges from his underground shelter.

“Kusturica's impassioned metaphorical fable about the tragic fate of his homeland also reaches this terrible insight: "There is no war until a brother kills his brother."” (Janet Maslin)
