Eric Roberts makes an impressive screen debut as Dave, grandson of the aging King Zharko, who is chosen by him to lead the gypsy clan at his death. Dave's only inclination is to join the American mainstream, but he knows that the mantle of gypsy power cannot be taken lightly or denied. Written by
Everyone should see this movie, I first saw this on TV when I was about 5 years old, I never forgot this movie, it made a lasting impression on me. Judd Hersche, who plays the mean abusive father, is great. It shows him in a opposite light than what everybody is used. The acting and story is superb.
Real quick summary: It portrays a steriotypical image of gypsy culture. There is a self proclaimed "King" whom all the gypsies acknowledges. The king has a son, Judd hershe, who assumes he is going to be king, but he's a mean S.O.B, he makes his son, Eric roberts, run away and live on the streets, Eric does not want to have anything to do with the gypsies. The "King" wants him to be the next King of the Gypsies.
Just go see it, it's great 4 stars
