Review of 'Life is a Miracle', director Emir Kusturica
Bosnia, 1992. Luka, a Serbian engineer from Belgrade, lives in a mountain village with his opera-singing wife, Jadranka, and their soccer-mad son, Milos.
Luka is preparing to build a railroad that will transform the region into a tourist paradise but remains deaf to the persistent rumblings of war. When conflict explodes, Jadranka disappears on the arm of a musician and Milos is called up to fight.
The Serbian army appoints Luka guardian of a Muslim hostage, Sabaha. Before long Luka has fallen in love with her but she has to be exchanged for a Serbian captive - his son.
