"The Crazy Stranger"
Directed by Tony Gatlif
The director of Latcho
Drom and Mondo delivers another seductive exploration of Gypsy
culture in this vibrant tale of a young Parisian who
comes to Romania to track down a legendary folk singer, finding romance
along the way. "A spontaneity and freshness rare in movies…the talk
is raw, the atmosphere is earthy, the drink is strong and the sex is not
exactly refined" (Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle).
"A great, free, emotionally powerful pageant that, at its best, makes
your body and soul dance" (Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune).
French and Romany with English subtitles. 97
