This Palme d'or winning film, directed by Emir Kusturica, uses the epic story of two friends to portray the history of Yugoslavia.

The film follows two underground black market weapons manufacturers, Marko and Blacky, in Belgrade. Their story begins in WWII, selling weapons to the Communist resistance, and culminates when they re-emerge from the subterranean shelter during the Yugoslavian Civil War in the 1990s.

The film is a testament to Kusturica’s talent and won him his second Palme d’Or - something which only seven directors have ever managed to achieve. One of the most iconic features of the film is its unique soundtrack by Goran Bregović several songs from the album such as Mesečina and Kalašnjikov, became classic brass-band hits.

Podzemlje

An achievement, both for the people behind this giant of a film (Kusturica & Co.) and those in BFI behind this release. It's a 3-disc effort, with two DVDs containing ONCE UPON A TIME, THERE ONCE WAS ONE COUNTRY, an extended version of UNDERGROUND, a 6-episodes TV mini-series that might further help you with some dilemmas you had about the film itself. I'm writing this in the summer of 2018, so if you still have a chance to find and buy this edition -- do it. It's limited, so don't hesitate any longer.
