I love this film. This is the first film that I've seen by director Emir Kusturica, and I found it visually astounding, it was like watching a moving surrealist painting. The entire cast was excellent. This is Johnny Depp's third film, following Edward Scissorhands, and you get an initial peek at the range of his acting ability, he's superb in this. The film has a very European feel to it, that's just lovely. If you like to push the envelope, don't miss this film.
