I had a unique opportunity to attend a semester in a film class where Yevgeni Yevtushenko was the instructor. He showed this film in class. Without giving away too many details, this is the story of a boy who grows up in a time of war and rebellion. He is taken in by a group of gypsies who teach him how to survive. Yevgeni is seen in the movie as a man playing chess in a park. He was delighted to sign Klaus Maria Brandauer to the pic. Klaus is the James Bond nemesis in Never Say Never Again. One of my favorite scenes is the wedding. The kid treats the group to a Moiseyev dance in the Gypsy style.
