Movie Info

Perhan (Davor Dujmovic) is a Gypsy teenager with the ability to move objects with his mind. A criminal named Ahmed convinces him to leave his devoted grandmother (Ljubica Adzovic) and loving girlfriend, and to use his powers to make some money illegally. While becoming a man and learning the trade of crime, the boy searches for his sister (who was supposed to have a leg operation) and tries to save money to realize his fantasy of returning home to marry the woman of his dreams. This film won Emir Kusturica an award at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival for his direction and was the first feature to be filmed with its entire dialogue in the Gypsy language, Romany. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Time of the Gypsies

  • Oct 24, 2011
    Kusturica is one insane and obsessive genius. His visionary talent provided a giant, epic and complete work of art with brilliant metaphysical tendencies and challenging viewing standards, very defying by the time. No words can describe its universality: just challenge yourself, throw yourself in and be totally absorbed. 98/100
