shutka book of records
10 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom wales) – See all my reviews

the shutka book of records.what a film,what a people.possibly the worlds best holiday destination,if u knew where it was.the wonder of roma life in all its weirdness.from champion vampire wrestlers to champion "dressers"to champion pigeon chuckers.watch it and love it,i've done it lots so i know.cannot quite work out whether this film is a comedy or documentary,it says it is both on the cover of the DVD,but whatever it is it is marvelous.a ramshackle gypsy city bursting energy and oddness.the women are beautiful the men are ugly,unless they dress the circumcision beds.the music of the wedding bands winds through it with its strange balkan modes and sinuous clarinets.i've looked and listened maybe ten times and i'll do it again.i hope you do.you will not regret it.i'd put it in my top ten.
