Gadjo Dilo (The Crazy Stranger)

synopsis


From the director of Latcho Drom, Gadjo Dilo (The Crazy Stranger) is the story of Stephane (Romain Duris) a young Frenchman who travels to Romania in search of a Gypsy singer. He befriends an old Gypsy man, Isidor (Izidor Serban), who takes him to stay at his house in a Gypsy village. Stephane seeks out the local Gypsy communities, recording their songs and music on his portable Dat machine, becoming closer to vodka-loving Izidor and hot-tempered beauty, Sabina (Rona Hartner). Set in the Romanian winter, the Gypsy culture is depicted in all its glory and squalor. It is a fantastically different world. The soundtrack is rich and varied. A bilingual film, it shifts skilfully, and often amusingly between French and Romany (the local dialect). Gadjo Dilo is funny, beautiful and vibrant, expressing a real joy for life and was an audience favourite at both the Sydney and Melbourne Film Festivals.

It is amazingly down to earth and beautiful lyrical film, food for the ears and eyes with gypsy touch.
