Underground, by Emir Kusturica, is one of the great films of recent years. From 1995, it uses the epic, funny, violent and ultimately tragic story of two friends to symbolically depict and satirize the history of the former Yugoslavia since the Second World War. It is an astonishing piece of storytelling.
You can see a trailer for the film here:
And, the antic presence of Kusturica’s No Smoking Orchestra throughout the story as a sort of modern take on the Greek chorus is an absolute hoot. Here’s one of his music videos for the group.
