FUSE. Pjer Zalica's debut feature starts with a jolt - emblematic of the dangers buried beneath the surface of a small rustic village, where, two years after the civil war has officially ended, Serbs and Muslims try to live and work together. A dryly humorous tone as well as a shrewd sense of reality, even in the tragic legacy of post war Bosnia, balance this beautifully wrought political satire. Times are tough indeed, and everyone in town seems to make their living the unlawful way. It's an unflinchingly honest and funny look at the struggle of a poor, corrupt community trying to hide its illegal activities and unhappy alliances and establish democracy - 'cause President Clinton is coming to visit! Bosnia and Herzegovina, 2003. 105 min. T27B. Sat. MARCH 27 at 3PM W28C. Sun. MARCH 28 at 6PM
