Kukumi

Kukumi Lowest new price: $15.98
Lowest used price: $4.98
List price: $19.99

With "a poetic, intense opening that recalls ... Tarkovsky," it is the story of Kukumi, Mara and Hasan, three patients "liberated" from a mental institution when the UN arrives, who wander the chaos of postwar Kosovo like lost children looking for a home. Arriving at the village of Hasan's brother, they find a less than enthusiastic welcome but move into an abandoned building and set up housekeeping.

Though what the film has to say about freedom, anarchy, love, hate, brutality, xenophobia and acceptance may be familiar; and though the device of viewing the insanity of war and post-war landscapes through the eyes of the legitimately insane is a long-standing one; the film's language is new and fresh, and seems, like the hapless trio itself, to be attempting to create a new tradition from the rubble.

Described variously as "enigmatic, mournful, darkly comic," and "lyrically surreal," praised for its visual originality, its "disturbingly pessimistic reflection on the meaning of freedom" and its statement via metaphor, the film, bolstered by a terrific musical score, was a prize winner at both the Sarajevo and Venice film festivals. Please join us in welcoming a new tradition - Kosovo cinema.

Just when the boy s parents give up hope of raising the money, a man contacts Mladen and offers to pay the whole amount; in exchange, he must kill the man s business rival. The proposal repulses Mladen, but as his son s condition suddenly deteriorates, he begins to seriously consider the offer.

Siberian Lady Macbeth

Siberian Lady Macbeth Lowest new price: $18.60
Lowest used price: $18.59
List price: $28.27
Brand: Kino International

Shakespearean tragedy collides with film noir in a remote Russian village in this dark fable from celebrated Polish filmmaker Andrzej Wajda (Danton, Ashes and Diamonds). Siberian Lady Macbeth observes the cruel machinations of Katarina, a ruthless woman (Olivera Markovic) who will let nothing threaten her affair with a mysterious drifter (Ljuba Tadic). When her father-in-law (Bojan Stupica) discovers her indiscretion, she dispatches him with a dose of rat poison. But soon others, including her husband, sister-in-law, and young nephew develop suspicions of their own... and test the limits to which Katarina's lethal passion will carry her. The film's barbaric setting (photographed in beautiful black-and-white by Aleksandar Sekulovic) emphasizes the primordial desires that propel its heroine toward destruction, while Wajda's carefully composed images (backed by a score drawn from the works of Shastakovich) endow the film with a visual impact and formal grace that make Siberian Lady Macbeth an unsung classic of Eastern European Cinema.

Do You Remember Dolly Bell?

Do You Remember Dolly Bell? Lowest new price: $19.98
Lowest used price: $18.20
List price: $29.98
Brand: E1 ENTERTAINMENT

Director Emir Kusturica is known outside of his native Bosnia for films such as ARIZONA DREAM, UNDERGROUND and BLACK CAT, WHITE CAT. This early example of his work was shot in his home country in the early 1980s (when it was still known as Yugoslavia), is set in the 1960s, and follows the fortunes of a young man named Dino (Slavko Stimac). Enthralled by the life that flashes before his eyes in the local cinema, Dino becomes enamored of the criminal life, and enters into a life of petty crime. But when he is rewarded for his work via a liaison with local prostitute Dolly Bell (Ljiljana Blagojevic), his world is turned upside down as he falls in love with her. Showing signs of the stylistic flair that Kusturica was to effectively deploy in later movies, DO YOU REMEMBER DOLLY BELL? is a must-see for fans of his work.

Little Mother

Little Mother Lowest new price: $499.09
Lowest used price: $35.00
List price: $24.99

Young Eva Peron sleeps her way to the top of a nation, bedding important ministers and generals. When her new husband becomes President, she finally has all the power she craves--until her shocking downfall.

Christiane Krüger is Marina Pinares, a thinly veiled Eva Peron known to her adoring public as "Little Mother" who sleeps, self-promotes, and blackmails her way to political power in an unnamed South American country. The mosaic Citizen Kane-like structure begins in the present, as the hypocritical hero of the people campaigns to become canonized while flashbacks reveal her wicked past: her early life as a call girl, wild orgies, and her cagey manipulations of a succession of powerful lovers. As in most of Radley Metzger's work, the sex is more teasing than explicit and Hans Jura's cinematography is lush and lovely, but the tone is more swinging '70s than cynical satire, neither as luridly sensationalistic as it should be or as dramatically compelling as it could be. Kruger never captures the necessary dynamism to convince us that she's the most loved figure of her time, but she delivers the ruthlessly ambitious dimension in spades and the supporting cast, including Ivan Desny (The Marriage of Maria Braun) and Anton Diffring (Fahrenheit 451), brings a touch of class to the sleazy but stylish decadence. Metzger's art-film ambitions are better realized in the lush romantic tragedy of Therese and Isabelle and the heady mind games of The Lickerish Quartet. --Sean Axmaker

The Wounds

The Wounds List price: $29.95

Two dewey-faced, clever 16 year old boys, Pinki and Kraut, who come of age during the war torn early 1990s in Serbia--a period of moral and material disaster for the nation--look for role models and heroes on the TV talk show 'The Street Pulse' (a real program in Belgrade) where gangsters are treated as rock stars. Soon they become apprentices to one of their local mobsters and master the use of remorseless violence to achieve the power, wealth and fame they crave. The boys quickly and willingly take over their mentor's nihilistic operations yet still maintain their childish antics and a need to prove their toughness. When one boy seriously wounds the other because of a misunderstanding, their unwritten rule means that he will be repaid bullet for bullet.
