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: the boy who dreams of going to Western Europe so that he may be mistaken for Pakistani; stolen ostriches accepted as payment in lieu of cash; the white documentary film crew whose members combine compassion with unconscious racism. -- (C) Film Forum

Critic Reviews for Gypsy

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (1)

  • The general texture of the film is constantly engaging-the way that these people, long accustomed to abuse and disadvantage, have made for themselves an accommodating and comfortable culture.

  • 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.

    June 29, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie is vibrant and modern, and doesn't treat Miigr as a mute, unknowable alien.

    June 28, 2012 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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

    June 26, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    June 26, 2012 | Full Review…
  • [It] doesn't try to counteract stereotypes of the Roma people as shiftless, thieving hustlers. But it goes a long way toward explaining the antisocial behavior.
