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.

Despite some flaws, this is one of the more important films likely to be seen in 2011 since it deals with a people who are facing brutal discrimination all across Europe.
