Storyline

Radu, son of gypsies is the only one that has left the gypsy village. The village, named Dallas, consists of shacks and is built near a garbage dump, the source of income for the completely wretched and illiterate inhabitants. A teacher now, he returns after many years to attend the funeral of his father. Gradually he gets assimilated again and gets involved with his former love and neighbor Oana. However, Oanas husband, a despicable character, who has been chased out of the village due to the way he treated his wife, comes to take revenge. During the brawl, Oanda gets killed and thus Radu finally leaves the village to return to his former life.

A Visually Riveting Film
27 October 2007 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

I have just viewed this film at the Bangkok World Film Festival. From the opening scene, this is a film that is both visually compelling with a very good storyline. The story builds and builds and never gets bogged down in unnecessary emotionalism or morality. The story takes place in one of the most shocking locales ever filmed, a gypsy barrio in the middle of a garbage dump. The squalor, poverty, and, roughness of the people, are as real as it gets. Compelling beyond the natural revulsion that we feel viewing their condition of life, there is human tenderness, goodness, and, a natural sympathy we develop with the characters. Great acting, faces that are out of an Andre Kertesz photo book, and, all the hooks that make this a first rate film that should be seen by serious movie goers.
