- Inspired by short stories of Marcel Ayme -
After half a century of Communism and Atheism
- Religion is Back to stay!
But is this disoriented Eastern European society ready for it? A working-class man receives a Halo; a death-row criminal transforms into a baby; an artist discovers that his paintings don't just feed souls, but stomachs too. Breathing the surrealism of Bunuel and rich in distinctive dark comedy, the latest feature from acclaimed Serbian filmmaker, Srdjan Dragojević ("The Parade"), is by far his most ambitious project yet. Set in a post-communist society, riddled with superstition, corruption and hope, three magical stories intertwine over the span of three decades, in a poignantly idiosyncratic exploration of God's miracles.
