Roma deportations
5 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The documentary follows the lives of several Roma, two in particular, who have been deported from Germany to Belgrade, and inserted into economic and social situations totally alien to their previous experience. They complain of having all money and valuables confiscated upon arrival, but this is never confirmed, as the film is not investigative, and focuses solely on the Roma characters. There is no narrative or music, and the director lets the characters deliver whatever messages the film conveys through their conversations and facial expressions.

The two main characters both have very sympathetic stories. The first to be introduced has lost much in being deported, but has managed to buy a car and uses it to earn his livelihood. Hard-working and seemingly a good person, this guy is an example of how many advanced democracies' immigration policies need serious revision (not only Germany's). The second is a young man who has been separated from his parents, and is searching for them in the Roma community around Belgrade, with Kenedi's help. He has spent his entire life in Germany, is obviously bright and well educated, but can't communicate effectively in the local languages. What will happen to this young man, who obviously has a lot of potential?

Interesting for even the casual viewer, fascinating for those interested in Roma affairs or the legacy of the former Yugoslavia. I caught this late night on the Polish cable channel called Kultura. I would love to see the follow-up.
