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

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.
