One is prone to oblivion and in the course of time the technique of forgetting turns into a crucial human capacity.
That is how the great Serbian director Emir Kusturica’s autobiography begins. Seventeen chapters of seventeen peculiar, authentic, provocative and before all else very sincere stories – the director flicks through the family album from the earliest days of his childhood; he describes the road of his personal and creative life on the background of the troubled years during the second half of XX and the beginning of XXI century. It is a book – an autobiography, a saga-novel and an unusual “film” at the same time. The author tells a number of stories sparing neither himself nor the others. He does not keep silent about anything.
