(aka 'L'Étranger fou' or 'Strainul nebun' or 'The Crazy Stranger')

Directed by Tony Gatlif
Romania / France 1997

 

  Endearingly shaggy comedy-drama, improvised around the thinnest wisp of plot: genial, wild-haired young Frenchman Stephane (Romain Duris) arrives in a remote Romanian village in search of Nora Luca, a Gypsy singer much loved by his late father. The local Roma community is initially hostile, but gradually accept Stephane after he first befriends blustery oldster Izidor (Izidor Serban), and then local ‘bad girl’ Sabina (Rona Hartner).

But this narrative is really just an arbitrary framework on which Algerian-Gypsy Gatlif strings colorful vignettes illustrating the richness of Roma life. He’s out to celebrate a remarkable culture that survives in Europe’s hidden corners, one whose Eastern roots are clearly exposed in the frequent bouts of singing and dancing. Perhaps he’d have been better off making it as a documentary - Gadjo Dilo is much more successful in terms of anthropology and good-time atmosphere than as a feature-film drama.

Comments:

A typical NY'er release - decent, if marginally hazy and anamorphic, image in the correct aspect ratio with optional English subtitles. Colors seem true, if not especially vibrant. A sweet comedic film that is great to have available to North American audiences... perhaps exposing (or enhancing) gypsy myths in a gentle humorous manner. The only relevant extra is a trailer for the film.
