Product Description

Young Parisian Stéphane (Romain Duris) travels to Romania, searching for the gypsy musician who recorded his father's favourite song. He is taken in by aged gypsy Izidor (Izidor Serban), himself a master fiddler, and despite the initial hostility of Izidor's fellow gypsies (who regard him as a 'gadjo dilo': 'crazy outsider') begins to document and record their music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trying to find this film 6 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
Since seeing this film years ago, in the cinema, it's haunting earthiness and great soundtrack have stayed with me. Sometimes the memory of a film is better than a re watching, but not in this case. Young Parisian goes in search of his bereaved father's favourite gypsy singer. Taken in by a Romanian gypsy family , he experiences the joys, tribulations and day to day casual discrimination that these communities go through.
Great spirit, great musical soundtrack and earthy acting. Great to see it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars touching and vivid 5 Mar 2014
By schumann_bg TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I loved Gadjo Dilo when it was released, and seeing it again now I still found it a charming film, both as a portrait of the Roma people and a story of one young man's journey of discovery. The music is absolutely superb, and their dancing full of spirit. Romain Duris has a winning smile and very open attitude to the unknown, and the characters he meets are feisty and disarming by turns - however I don't think I could have 'roughed it' quite like Duris does, with such good grace. The lifestyle he adopts, for a time, seems less exotic 17 years on, and more like an ordeal, including the absolute impossibility of getting even the simplest point communicated, even though there was certainly a high enough decibel level! As I say, it is really the music and singing which makes it, and Rona Hartner is full of gypsy fire and intrigue as the Romantic interest, with the added originality that the character is not above a bit of biting if things don't go her way ... the dirty talk that seems to come so naturally to her is also quite funny! The fairly elderly Izidor, who takes in Duris with much kindness a bit like a long-lost son, cannot fail to leave a mark on the viewer.

5.0 out of 5 stars great film 27 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I like this film as l think it is quite an accurate portrayal of some Roma , it has beautiful and amusing scenes in it, also tragedy, try watching it without sub-titles and you'll empathise better with the problem of language. The music is great, and it's worth watching the film just for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Ode to Loving Difference 10 May 2010
By B. Juez
Format:DVD
This film is a favourite of many students of European cinema, whether they also be interested in languages, cultures, or not. It is full of life (whilst on a journey toward a dead father, himself a fan of an unreachable gypsy singer). It deals with the stereotypes surrounding nomads of all kinds and brings things back into (an alternative) perspective. See it!
