I saw this film in the Cork film festival 2 days ago and it was by far my favorite. I was smiling the whole way through. Such a simple but effective idea, and despite how off the wall the characters are I think everyone knows someone like at least one of them. You also get a rare insight into the life of the Roma people. The fact that the narrator knows the people and the town personally makes the film more honest, and even though it's kind of satirical I think it was done in an affectionate way! It's amazing to see a place so close geographically and so far away in every other aspect. I actually want to go to Shutka now, and become a champion of something myself!:)
