This film is basically Kusturica's excuse to shoot romantic scenes with Monica Bellucci. Plot is non-existent, some acting is below terrible, especially Sloboda Micalovic, who couldn't be bothered to learn how to properly speak a Bosnian dialect. Animation is cheap, there is no character development, everything revolves around how great, strong, yet fragile main character is. The only good thing I have to say about this film is photography, which is really outstanding and deserves a reward. In conclusion, I'm baffled that such a Tommy Wisseauesqe pile of self-glorified garbage ever made it to a single movie festival.
A three-part narrative recounting three periods in the life of a man: his time as a lucky milkman during the war, perilous escapades and blossoming romance with the woman he loves, and his later life as a monk, looking back over the tumultuous past - both his and his country's.
