Tony Gatlif at his peak

What a tremendous drama this another version of Romeo and Juliette or WEST SIDE STORY, where two families fight against each other because of a young Turkish bride who runs away on the wedding day to take refuge in her Gypsy lover's arms...Guess the following events. The most amazing here is the Celine Sallette's terrific performance, one of her best up today, as a dedicated youngster educator who fights like a dog, to prevent the drama between the two communities.

Tony Gatlif is a director specialized in movies speaking of lesser people, especially gypsy one. He is a true master in depicting social despair, poor people's griefs. See for instance LES PRINCES OR GADJO DILLO.
