It was an absolutely marvelous film from beginning till end. The performance of the gypsy women was stunning. The camera was superb. And the realistic way of visual storytelling was not messing the film world, rather made the picture stronger and more influential. It has so much in common with the world's problems. The director described in such a magnificent and true way this people of whom we seldom think- all those women who don't have the right to think what they would love to do, because it has been decided by others. There are many connections with the Darden movies. This one is worth watching! Something different caring the signature of a new director.
