What interested Kusturica about subject matter of the film most was the connection he saw between gypsies and South American literature. For according to himself, Time of the Gypsies belongs entirely to the world of Garcia Marquez and other Latin American writers "who built their art on the irrationality and poverty of their people".

According to Kusturica, the gypsies' laws are founded on two things - a deep myth and the terrific spiritual resources drawn from that myth.
