Time of the Gypsies ★★★ Dom Za Vesanje 1990 (R)

Acclaimed Yugoslavian saga about a homely, unlucky Gypsy boy who sets out to steal his way to a dowry large enough to marry the girl of his dreams. Beautifully filmed, magical, and very long. In the Gypsy language, Romany, it's the first feature film made in the Gypsy tongue. 136m/C VHS . YU Davor Dujmovic, Sinolicka Trpkova, Ljubica Adzovic, Hunsija Hasimovic, Bora Todorovic; D: Emir Kusturica. Cannes ‘89: Director (Kusturica).
