Product Description

Fuse (Gori Vatra) – Amazon.com Exclusive

This brilliantly controlled debut feature opens with a jolt symbolic of the dangers buried beneath the surface of a small rustic village in Bosnia. Two years after the civil war has officially ended, Serbs and Muslims are trying to live and work together. A dryly humorous tone contrasted with a shrewd sense of reality, even in the tragic legacy of post-war Bosnia, balances this beautifully wrought political satire.

Times are tough indeed, and everyone has to make his or her living in some sort of illegal way. It's an unflinchingly honest and darkly funny depiction of a poor, corrupt community struggling to hide its unlawful activities, unhappy alliances, amidst an attempt to establish some sort of democracy. Pjer Zalica combines techniques from 1960s East European comedies and his background in documentaries to generate a steady stream of sparks, built around a single, quasi-political event (Clinton is planning a visit).

"Intelligent...Masterly...A droll, soulful film." -New York Times

"Unflinchingly honest and darkly funny!" -The Museum of Modern Art

Fuse is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Bosnian with English subtitles.

This is equal parts tragedy and comedy. Bill Clinton is coming to visit this Serbian town and the advance party tries to get the mayor to plan a suitable welcoming festivity and hide all the criminal activity that's going on. In the meantime, the war still intrudes--one local girl returned from Germany has her legs mutilated by a land mine outside her old house--the father of a man who was killed trying to escape the war with his girlfriend talks to his ghost regularly--the black market in goods and hookers still thrives--the Serbs and the Bosnians, who used to be neighbors, still distrust each other. It's a statement on the absurdity of war as well as the resilience of people who've been through it and survived. Good movie.

Fast paced, hilarious yet deep - this movie very realisticly describes the Bosnia I've come to live in and love during the war.

Been looking for this on DVD since I've seen the movie 3 years ago.

Go for it, you wont regret it!

Although I agree with each of the other reviews, do not let them make you think that this movie is (all) a downer--it has some wonderful, funny moments. A lit of them, actually. As sad and touching and surreal... like life. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie... does any one know where I can get the soundtrack?

I really enjoyed this. Every actor made their character add so much to every scene and the story has a good comedic premise. Politics and money go together like peanut butter and jelly. It was a tasty movie, a very watchable movie.

Excellent! Amazing how it was able to integrate global and personal issues. An authentic feel of the strife that lingers in the region.
