Storyline

Roming is a comical road movie about three Romas' journey from North Bohemia to Slovakia. Jura (Vítezslav Holub) is a modern, rational young man who is studying at university and doing well. When his father (Marián Labuda) asks him to go to Slovakia with him to meet his bride-to-be - from an agreement Jura's father made with his best friend when Jura was still a boy - Jura can't believe his ears. At first he rejects the ridiculous request, but it doesn't take long before he folds under his father's emotional blackmail. Together with the temperamental and uncontrollable family friend Stano (Bolek Polívka), they set off in an old delivery van on a cross-country trip. Roming is an exceptional film in all ways. Just below the surface of the comedy-road movie genre is the universal message of human solidarity, tolerance, and searching for one's own identity. The screenplay won the Sazka Prize and came in first in the national round for the international Hartley-Merrill Prize. Written by Czech film center

Very Funny
16 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

I won't go too into details about the story, but in a quick summary, this is a road trip film. That being said, there is a story within a story that adds a bit more to it.

This is a very funny film, for a few reasons. It plays very well off the streotypes of gypsies (also called Roma so you can see how the title plays off this) without being racist. But it is the comic genius of Bolek Polivka who really makes this film. He plays a character who really doesn't care about anything important. I was afraid I wouldn't understand this film without subtitles, but I managed largely because I am quite used to how people like Bolek's character speak. Believe it or not, but people like his character actually exist here in CZ. I have friends who act, speak and live like that.

My only problem with this film is that it was a bit too long, it could've been 10-20 minutes shorter. Like any road film, the characters move from one funny situation to another, which is fine, but by the end of the film, I was getting a bit impatient. All in all however, this is a funny film, well directed, very good music, an interesting story, and very much worth a look if you can.
