Underground is a 1995 award-winning film directed by Emir Kusturica with a screenplay by Dušan Kovačević.

It is also known by the subtitle Once Upon a Time There Was a Country (Serbian: Била једном једна земља, Bila jednom jedna zemlja), which was the title of the story shown on Serbian television as a 5-hour mini-series. The film uses the epic story of two friends to symbolically depict and satirise the history of Yugoslavia since the Second World War. The film was an international co-production between companies in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, France, Germany and Hungary.

Along with his 1988 film Time of the Gypsies, Underground is widely considered to be one of Kusturica's best films.
