Korkoro fashions a thin tapestry out of the authentic and the chintzy.

The war hovers, its intrusions and dangers giving the story tension and a minute-by-minute poignancy: these lives, we're aware, may all too soon be erased.

Robust emotion and cultural detail offset slight plotting and characterizations.

While much of Korkoro avoids stylistic flourishes, Gatlif picks his moments to use cinematic language to revel in the terror his characters experience.

Reminding the world of the Roma Holocaust. . .lovely film is as life-affirming as it is sad. If rated, it would be at most PG-13 and deserves to be seen by a wide audience.

There's a great, little-known story of the Nazi persecution of gypsies, but this narcissistic morass of bathos and pure cliché is not it.
