Movie Reviews

A wonderful movie about the difference between consumption a
Ronelle Coburn | 09/23/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Gadjo Dilo is a wonderful meditation of the difference between the idealistic (or, on the other side, racist) arm's-distance view people of one culture can have of another and what it means to see others as yourself (or yourself as other). The great irony, of course, as a viewer of this film, is that you yourself are just a passing voyeur who consumes a bit of Rom culture for as long as its on the screen...then you return to the life you actually have, wherever you are. An absorbing story draws you in and gives you just a little taste of what it means to be Rom in modern times...and how it hasn't changed much over the centuries."
Starts slowly but beautiful
W. James D. Easton | Bonita, CA USA | 03/17/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In various languages with subtitles.

Tour de force of cultural and language misunderstandings. I laughed. I cried. An emotional roller coaster that grabs one's heart. Compelling love and ghastly murders all intimately intertwined. Beautiful music and dancing for intermissions. Awesome."
