Mesmerizing, which is a word I did not think I would ever use for a Slovene film. I don’t know what is about Slovene cinema when most of the time the actors speak a foreign language, but in most cases, those films are better and feel more authentic.
This is a classic story, based on a book, about four generations of gypsies who built their own village in the middle of nowhere.
It has been beautifully shot and skillfully directed to a point that invokes memories of Kusturica. I can’t recall if I was ever so impressed by the art direction, costumes, and authenticity of the era in a Slovene movie. The actors feel believable even though it is clear not all of them are professionals. Really well done.
