5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST MOVIE EVER MADE 8 Mar 2007
By Ariana C. Costakes - Published on
Although it seems redundant to add to all these rave reviews of Dom Za Vesanje, I can't help but hope our fanaticism will contribute to the eventual release of the film on DVD. The cinematography is far too ethereally perfect and the music too sublime to go without digital remastering. This movie is the most soulful and somehow dignified tale of human experience and tragedy. It is also the first film ever to be made entirely in the Romany language. The actors, though they were mostly amatures, came through more powerfully than any first-world film star ever could hope to. This movie gave me a completely new outlook on everything. I hope this awkward review is helpful to somebody, and for Devla's sake, RELEASE THIS MOVE ON DVD!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A real masterpiece all the way! 12 May 2005
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on
Emir Kusturica got inmersed with all the imaginable poetry and still more in the gypsy world. And his hallucinating handle camera helps eloquently for the absolute triumph of this artwork.
The dreams, hopes and tragedy will be told with such splendor that you will be surprised with its freshness and rapture.
A formidable statement that consolidated once more to Kusturica as one of the most promiment directors of the world in those ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must see - a rare movie 24 Nov 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on
This is one of the movies which you have never heard of, will never probably hear about. Wonder what would have brought you here to read this review.

I saw this movie, when I was flipping channels in Hotel in Toronto in 2003 - the movie started on a slow note, but the various turns it took for the poor little boy Pehran was very saddening and makes your heart heavy at the end of the movie.

The movie captures the essence of gypsy living - their desire to settle down, the dreams in big cities, their local heroes and their family(?) life.

Excellent sound tracks and videography - I can still remember the lake in one of the moview scenes

5.0 out of 5 stars What else can be said... 23 Dec 2007
By supersnap - Published on
Watched it today for the first time in a couple of years, having managed to seize a used copy from a closing video rental store. I figured it had to have been sold by then, but some sly, kindred soul had actually hidden it deep in the tape racks.

It still is the most harrowing and affecting cinematic odyssey I have ever experienced. Like receiving truth through magic.

How many five star reviews are necessary for distributors to realize the value of this film? Seriously...

5.0 out of 5 stars As an American Rom, I have never loved a movie more that represents truth. 5 Dec 2013
By josh - Published on
As an American Rom, I have never loved a movie more that represents truth. However me being a Rom or not Does not change the fact that since I saw it nearly 20 years ago I still find this is most touching, truthful and haunting films I've ever seen. Unfortunately I used to own the full 4 1/2 hour version that The Great Emir Kusturica originally aired on Yugoslavian television That I idiotically gave to an old girlfriend who never returned it. Now this version is nearly impossible to find. But if you can and you love this film as much as I do seek out Kusturica DVD box set which has the two DVD full version which is even better, which Seems almost impossible. And for those Gadjo's or non-Rom this film will give you the purest and most truthful insight on what it means to be Roma and true Rom culture than any other film you will ever come across. I find it terribly tragic that there is no official DVD release, if not a criterion collection version of this film. If anyone is ever been interested in Gypsy culture, and what it truly means to be, don't pass this film by. Every person I've ever made to sit and watch this film has loved it dearly. It it is our duty to make sure that this film gets an official DVD release. And not a bootlegged Korean version. And if dreams can really come true the four a half hour version will also be officially released. For those of you who enjoy this great film as much as I, look for the full version Please and leave a remark on this review telling me where I can find it again.
