Powerful acting + realistic plot + Discovering an original them = Very good film.
27 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

Khamsa is the story of a young gypsy, "Marco" 11 years old, who comes back to his camp after an umpteenth runaway. Marco then re-bonds with his long time friends and cousins. You will then follow him in his plunge into the fragile world of thefts, scams and violence. The main actors are young kid, most of them non-professional and they deliver a striking performance. You also cross the path of the living magma which defines the camp life and the clear reality: we do not live in the same world. This kind of "social cinema", terminology refused by the director, signifies the breaks, the junction between those who and those who have not. Marco and his friends make money out of the financial system. Marco and his friends are not protected by the police. Marco and his friends do not go to school. They dream of dogfights and burning caravans.

Amazing movie. Beautiful setting, imagery and editing.
