Dadan has a sister, Afrodita, that he desperately wants to see get married so they strike a deal: Zare is to marry her.

Kusturica is a unique director, one of the few wild and poetic one.
This movie represent very well the spirit of the Balkans. Every frame of this picture is beautiful, magic and surreal. You can see a enormous pig eating a car, a joyfull band playing music attach to a tree, a man washing is body with a white duck . . .
And what about the music. It will cheer you up. A MUST SEE for everyone who love cinema.
