A group of gypsies fleeing the Natzi's during World War II.
This is a good film that depicts a small group of gysies escaping the German army during World War II. The group is fleeing south from Poland through Czechoslovakia and Hungary. Bucholz gives a good performance as the gypsy leader who must mediate disputes. Through all their travail there is romance with the leaders adolescent daughter and a boy from another gypsy family. The film is unique in that the hunted are not Jews or prisoners of war, but gypsies. I was so glad to see someone,somewhere make a film where a group other than Jews are depicted as the targets of Natzi hatred. Sadly you may never see this film since it was shown only once on Showtime in mid-afternoon a number or years ago.
