Bujold is a gypsy like Dr.Ruth is an astronaut.
11 October 2007 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

It's not a complex political thriller, and it's not a supernatural mystery drama, nor is it advanced finance/accounting - but it's still quite confusing. Maybe I need to see it again, no idea. I saw it many years ago, in German (thanks to the "wisdom" of synchronization). I remember it as a muddled, pointless comedy melodrama, though there wasn't much to laugh or chuckle to here.

But the real problem I had with this strange 70s movie is the casting of Genevieve Bujold as a gypsy: it is pure insanity. Haven't these Hollywood dopes ever seen real gypsies? In the U.S. the term "gypsy" may signify or imply "cute" so maybe they thought they should cast a cute actress such as Bujold undoubtedly is. They dyed her hair so heavily that it's blacker than black - but it didn't help. It can't. She is about as gypsy-looking as Robert Redford would be Italian-looking if they dyed HIS hair (he was the original choice for Michael Corleone in "The Godfather", believe it or not).

I live in Serbia and see gypsies every day. They'd laugh at this movie.
