Movie Info

Shades of Hamlet among the gypsies (the Roma): A Czech-Slovakian tale of a teenage boy who loses his father and distrusts his sleazy new stepdad. This poignant, resonant drama is equal parts neo-realism and modern Shakespearean tragedy. As Americans, most of us know little of the hardscrabble lives of contemporary gypsies, or their pariah status in Eastern Europe. A multiple prize-winner at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival last year, Gypsy limns memorable portraits, some flecked with bitter humor:

There are moments of wry humor, and of improbable beauty, in the dust blowing over a riverbank or even the blinking light over an emergency-room door.

The movie is vibrant and modern, and doesn't treat Miigár as a mute, unknowable alien.

Best are the film's tender ghostly visitations from Dad, evoked with a minimum of artiness, and the authentic, impoverished locations.

You might call it an old story with higher stakes, but a keen sensitivity to its moral difficulties and enlivening details sets Gypsy urgently apart.

A somber, melancholic drama with emotionally raw performances by its non-professional actors.

A portrait of a denigrated people disguised as revenge tragedy, Gypsy is a window onto a way of life rarely glimpsed by outsiders.

[A]uthenticity of the local cast and the rare images of a shantytown Roma ghetto in mountainous Slovakia outweigh stereotypes and the imposition of a Hamlet-like story.

A Slovakian character study of a boy ambivalently caught between worlds that ultimately squanders its promise.
