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.
