Movie Info

The Yugoslavian leading man Bekim Fehmiu plays a charismatic but mean-spirited gypsy, married to the submissive woman (Olivera Vuco). The gypsy couple's various escapades end up in a desperate flight from the Law. The authenticity of I Even Met Happy Gypsies is amplified by the use of genuine Gypsy melodies on the soundtrack; in addition, the film was shot in a near-extinct Gypsy language called Romany, requiring the film to carry subtitles even when released in Yugoslavia. I Even Met Happy Gypsies was the recipient of an award at the Cannes Film Festival, and was later nominated for a "best foreign picture" Academy Award. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Skupljaci Perja (Happy Gypsies) (I Even Met Happy Gypsies)

A kind of proto-Kusturica, all about the hot tempers, the fiery passions, and the song and dance and rich humor of gypsy life. It's an excellent film with some wonderful moments, although I thought Bora could have been a stronger character. I didn't really get into him the way I've been mesmerized by Kusturica's characters.
