Movie Info

A Gypsy family travels the French roads during the Second World War, followed by Little Claude, a young boy seeking a new family after his parents "left and never returned." Upon reaching a town where they traditionally stop for a few months and work in vineyards, they learn that a new law forbids them from being nomadic. Theodore, the town's mayor, and Miss Lundi, the schoolteacher, protect and help the Gypsies. Despite this, They are arrested and placed in an internment camp. Theodore manages to rescue them and gives them a piece of property where they must settle. But the Gypsies' deeply ingrained thirst for freedom makes this sedentary lifestyle difficult to bear. After Theodore and Miss Lundi are arrested for resistance, the Gypsies decide they must get back on the move in order to remain free.

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.
