Goodbye, 20th Century! (1998, VHS)!xE4AGDwC!afy2pe1LRmR8uqLw4Tdxmw-_jAdS0U-d4rsfsAeULdE

Goodbye, 20th Century! consists of three stories of extreme violence and emotional despair. The first takes place in the year 2019, where the world has become an environment of apocalyptic wreckage and ruin. A man named Kuzman is sentenced to death by a nomadic tribe, but their attempts to fatally shoot the condemned man are a failure. Fated to live forever, Kuzman wanders the wasteland until he encounters an enigmatic figure who offers him information on how he can escape eternal life.

The second story is a three-minute segment that takes place in 1900. Presented as a record of the first wedding ceremony ever captured on film, the scene devolves into violence when it is discovered the newlyweds are actually brother and sister.

The third story takes place on New Year’s Eve 1999. A man dressed as Santa Claus returns to his apartment building, where a wake is in session. The solemn mourning degenerates into violence while the sounds of the Sid Vicious punk rock rendition of My Way floods the proceedings. via Wikipedia

The quality of this VHS rip isn't so great but seems to get better as the film goes on. English subtitles are from the tape.
