An epic tale about love, friendship, betrayal, manipulation and lies, set against the backdrop of the the past fifty years in Yugoslavia. Follows the antics of two con-men. One hides his friend and many others, in a cellar to save them from the Gestapo, but neglects to tell them of the war's end, profiting from their arms-making industry until they finally break free to find some things never change.

24 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kusturica's film depicts the moral and political ambiguities which prevailed in Yugoslavia after its break with Stalin. Set from the summer of 1950 to the summer of 1952, a period in which the country weathered diplomatic, economic and military threats against its independence, the film charts the fortunes of a Muslim family seen through the eyes of its six-year-old son Malik. Smalltown life proceeds slowly and predictably in tones both comic and poignant, and in traditional rituals, both Moslem and Orthodox, which persist despite official atheism. That is, until Mesa, Malik's philandering father, offhandedly criticizes an anti-Stalinist cartoon, and his politically incorrect comment is relayed from jealous mistress to local Communist official who also happens to be his brother-in-law. Mesa is sent to a labor camp and later to exile in a provincial outpost where his family is able to join him. In this remote locale, young Malik experiences his first love, his first loss and his own political recognition. The boy's inner anxieties, perhaps mirroring those of his uncertain homeland, manifest themselves in episodes of sleepwalking. (Does not circulate)

Vojo Stanić : sailing on dreams by Vojislav Stanić( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over half a century the Montenegrin painter Vojislav Stanic has been living and working in the small town of Herceg Novi, observing the lives of its inhabitants from the window of his attic studio with a sharp eye and an impish intelligence. Here, so Stanic claims, is a microcosm of the world. One can see universal emotions and traits - love, lust, joy, fear, wonder, jealousy - played out in the parks and cafes of this bustling little port town on the Adriatic." "But if many of Stanic's insights come from keen observation of his neighbors, it is his idiosyncratic outlook and his eye for absurdities and gentle ironies which make his work so compelling. And if he draws on the work of such artists as Bosch, Magritte and de Chirico, it is always with a lightness of touch which leaves one in no doubt that Stanic is a major artistic talent in his own right. This book, including essays which trace his artistic development and explore his uniquely vital imagination, promises to bring his work to the international audience it deserves."--Jacket

Où suis-je dans cette histoire ? by Emir Kusturica( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Von seinen Filmen sagt man, die Bilder und Töne würden in Ewigkeit überdauern. Emir Kusturica, der gelegentlich den Mund recht vollnimmt, traut dieser Einschätzung nicht und schreibt vorsichtshalber seine Erinnerungen auf: beginnend an seinem ersten Schultag, als Juri Gagarin ins All flog, bis zu dem Tag, als Johnny Depp sein Freund wurde. Er folgt der Chronologie, aber das ist auch alles, was das Buch mit einer normalen Lebensgeschichte gemein hat. "Der Tod ist ein unbestätigtes Gerücht" ist ein Gesamtkunstwerk, das genau die Bilder erschafft, die man von Kusturica kennt: wilde Geschichten vom Balkan, quirlig, heiter, sentimental, brutal. Sein Buch ist ein adaptierter Autorenfilm, der die gedrehten und ungedrehten Szenen eines Lebens vorführt.-
