Storyline

Radu, son of gypsies is the only one that has left the gypsy village. The village, named Dallas, consists of shacks and is built near a garbage dump, the source of income for the completely wretched and illiterate inhabitants. A teacher now, he returns after many years to attend the funeral of his father. Gradually he gets assimilated again and gets involved with his former love and neighbor Oana. However, Oanas husband, a despicable character, who has been chased out of the village due to the way he treated his wife, comes to take revenge. During the brawl, Oanda gets killed and thus Radu finally leaves the village to return to his former life.

shocking images of the gypsy ghetto
26 November 2005 | by jozsefbiroSee all my reviews

Great movie with great performances! Even the story (the usual weak point of Hungarian movies) managed to capture me, although in retrospect it seems rather calculable and builds too much on usual clichés. The major strength of the movie is its atmosphere, built up by the shocking images of the gypsy ghetto and the amateur (well, they seem so real that I think they give themselves) cast. Also, roma communities are known for their lively and dominantly happy "southern" character, despite the poor conditions they live in: this is also shown here. I am sure that it takes more than this movie to make progress in emancipating the Romas of Central and Eastern Europe, but this movie certainly raises your understanding of these exploited people living "ganz unten".
