  • Time of Miracles

    1990. Yugoslavia/Great Britain. Directed by Goran Paskaljevic. Screenplay by Borislav Pekic, Paskaljevic. With Miki Manojlovic, Dragan Maksimovic, Svetozar Cvetkovic, Mirjana Karanovic. Communism comes to a small Yugoslav town in 1945. When the school burns down and classes are moved into the town church, the local Party leader insists—despite protests—that the church's icons be painted over. Soon the icons reappear through the whitewash, and the schoolteacher Lazarus, who died of injuries sustained in the fire, rises from the dead. Or maybe he didn't die at all? Paskaljevic plays with the clash of faiths, religious and secular, and the fervor they engender. In Serbo-Croatian; English subtitles. 100 min.
