Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #31. Emir Kusturica’s On the Milky Road

On the Milky Road

Director: Emir Kusturica
Writers: Emir and Dunja Kusturica
Producers: Lucas Akoskin, Alex Garcia, Paula Vaccaro
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Emir Kusturica, Monica Bellucci, Natasa Ninkovic

The two time Palme D’or winning Serbian director is working on his first film since 2007’s Promise Me This, which never received a US release. However, having Monica Bellucci headlining the cast will definitely snag some international interest. While he’s been appearing in a number of films in front of the camera, we’re happy to see Kusturica return to the director’s seat after a number of stalled projects have seen set aside.

Gist: The films is inspired by Kusturica’s short film Our Life, and consists of three stories: the first story is about a soldier with a task to get milk in the nearby village and take it to fellow soldiers. The second is about a woman who gives him the milk, and the third is about an ex-soldier (now a monk) who, when he finishes all daily duties, climbs up the cliff with a bucket of rocks to empty it.

Release Date: This should definitely bow in the Main Competition at Cannes.
