Black Cat, White Cat (1998)


“Crna macka, beli macor”

Comedy, Crime

Black Cat, White Cat is romantic black comedy film directed by Emir Kusturica. It won the Silver Lion for Best Direction at the Venice Film Festival. The literal translation of the title is actually “Black (female) cat, white tomcat”. The movie characters speak in Romani, Serbian, and Bulgarian – frequently switching among them.

When gypsy grifter Matko (Bajram Severdzan) is abruptly swindled by his own partner, he is unable to pay the large debt he suddenly owes. As an alternative form of payment, Matko forces his adolescent son Zare (Florijan Ajdini) into an arranged marriage with his partner’s midget sister, Afrodita (Salija Ibraimova). However, both Zare and Afrodita find the marriage objectionable, and their attempts to escape the situation lead to a series of unpredictable comic escapades.
