Gadjo Dilo 2-don't expect too much
11 June 2006 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie at Transylvania International Film Festival. Mixed reaction from people attending this movie selected as the closing movie of this festival. At the Q&A with the director after the screening there were people accusing this movie of presenting a deformed Transylvania's reality. I kinda agree with the fact that this is almost nothing to do with Transylvania The director made a very bad choice naming this movie :Transylvania. People from abroad watching this movie might think that this part of Romania is just very poor dirty and mainly gypsy. The director tries to explained at the Q&A that he want it to present all the 3 ethnic communities living in Transylvania: Romanians, Hungarians and Gypsies. Hmmm.... All the Hungarians presented in the movie were in fact Hungarian Gypsies. I'm not being racist here but we Romanians tend to be very sensitive when foreign producers try to present Romania with the following "assests": Gypsies, poor, orphans, handicaps, thieves. Don't get me wrong it's a good movie with very good Romanian folk and gypsy music. It's a love story between two foreigners in Transylvania. Sometimes the movie is quite funny with a few Kusturica elements in it. Somehow the director is repeating the same story from his precedent movie Gadjo Dillo and I find that useless.
