a nice comedy about Gypsy community. mixture between fairy tale and road movie , lesson about basic values, definition of differences between generations and about soul of a hidden nation. behind that, one of the good acting of Jean Constantin, an extraordinary Romanian actor as Somali, head of a small kingdom, character of epic, searcher of magic bird, essence of Gypsy tradition, new Ahasverus who gentle fights against God, Devil and death, illustration of innocence and man without virtues, traveler on a long and ambiguous way to have crumb of sense for his existence. a movie like steam of Balkanian food. piece of Mitteleuropa, far by West but pure in its search to self - definition. a character who becomes creator of his author. a son who discover importance of roots. a father for who oldness is motif to configure trace of his life. a friend, strange kind of Don Quijote and Oblomov for who existence is a beautiful woman who must be conquered.
