Does anyone, particularly my Serbian friends, know where I can get an English subtitled dvd of the 1989 Goran Paskaljevic movie "Vreme Cuda"?

"Vreme Cuda", for those who may want to know, is set in a village in Yugoslavia in 1945. The village school has burned down and the Communist authorities take over the village Church to use as the school and whitewash over the Icon frescoes. When a wandering stranger comes to the village, the Icons suddenly re-appear and the village teacher (a Communist) is accused of trickery and is executed. The stranger visits the corpse of the teacher and he is resurrected, After a series of misunderstandings, the villagers turn on the stranger and kill him, and as he dies, the Icons in the Church fade away again.
Here is the scene in the movie when the Icons first re-appear:

....I couldn't understand most of the words....but, I got the meaning.

Gave me goosebumps.

Thanks George for sharing.

I'll ask some of the Serbs I work with.  I would be interested in seeing the whole thing, too.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
