In time, however, he regains some composure and becomes attracted to one of the gypsy girls, which only leads to problems within the gypsy band, especially when the wounded commanding officer finds him Written by Anonymous

androgyn, sexy - changed my life
6 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

I try to comment in english in spite of knowing that my english is awful. Sorry.

I've seen that film in 1995 and after that I decided making films by myself. I was very impressed of that sensual handling with an androgyne character. It faszinates me not to know: Is it an homosexual, an transvestite or just a female man. The story was not really clear for me, but the mileu and the characters have been so excellent, that the film today is already one of my favourite films.
