Is there any Orthodox content in the films by director Emir Kusturica? I've never seen any of his work, but I'm intrigued by what I read about him in the Los Angeles Times, particularly this bit:
Kusturica formally converted to Orthodox Christianity inside a thick-walled monastery and took the Serbian name Nemanja, in honor of the founder of a glorious Serb dynasty who was canonized as a saint.
Although his family had been Muslim for several hundred years, Kusturica said that it was a feature adopted only to survive the Ottoman occupation, as many Bosnian Slavs did at the time. He now feels they were really Serbs all along.
"I've reached the 50th year of my life, and now every question related with life also includes thinking about death," he told the Belgrade newsmagazine NIN. "When I leave, I want to leave to my offspring a clear idea about identity."
Yes I saw a movie from him, it was good... I do not remember which one it was. The theme was from the war, but not like an usual Hollywood movie.
Speaking of other movies. A beautiful Christian message is conveyed by the movie 'The life of others' (Das Leben der Anderen) - Best foreign movie at the Oscars. It is not about monasteries, monastics, saints, but about an average person working for the communist government in East Germany, who while spying on a dissident intellectual is transformed and comes to typify "love thy neighbor" commandment at the end.
