Beautiful People

107' - 1999 - War, Drama, Comedy - Dialogue: English
Director: Jasmin Dizdar Composer: Garry Bell With: Thomas Goodridge, Faruk Pruti, Tony Peters
Jasmin Dizdar’s debut feature takes place in London on October 13, 1993. England is to play against Holland in a critical World Cup qualifier. The Bosnian war is at its height, Sebrenica is besieged, and the UN is preparing relief airdrops. Serbian Dado Jehan and Croatian Faruk Pruti meet on a London bus. Recognizing each other as fellow refugees from the same village in Bosnia, they try to beat each other up. The subsequent crazy chase through the streets of central London sets the scene for a highly charged dark comedy. “Beautiful People” draws a portrait of the multicultural life of London where lives of British families are inadvertently linked with the lives of the refugees.
