Angelo My Love delves into the little understood and fascinating world of New York gypsies. Using real gypsies playing fictional versions of themselves. This critically acclaimed film explores the lifestyle, rites, myths and passions of the tight-knit urban subculture. Twelve year-old Angelo Evans is the street-wise. Charmingly precocious son of a fortune teller. When the boy accuses a sleazy gypsy, Steve "Patalay" Tsigonoff, and his foul-mouthed wife, Millie, of stealing an ancestral ring, he chases them to Canada. Angelo wants the ring for his future bride, Patricia, and nearly disgraces the family to get it back. Along the way, Duvall presents an extraordinary slice of gypsy life, highlighting there music and tribal customs, a wedding and a "kris" - the gypsies' court of justice. His film has a spontaneity and exuberance that make it a one-of-a-kind experience. Written by Linn M

A movie almost lost in time
26 March 2014 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

This is one of my lost movies which I had seen 20 years ago, left a good taste enough for not to forget. Finally found it in IMDb by adding a "gypsy" word in my search criteria, thanks to Google...

Angelo, an eight year old gypsy boy, makes the whole movie by himself; but not the "himself" in the movie, I think "himself" in real life. He had no acting experience before and drafted from his native gypsy life just as many other players in the movie...

It is about the boy's enviable living energy and self confidence which he generated to adapt to lives of grown.

Angelo is a brave early grown lovely child. The film's name was translated into Turkish in a phrase as "Lovely Angelo" ("Sevgili Angelo") which I think more convenient in order to express the feeling after seeing it...
