Jumping between Manhattan and Fire Island, vignettes carry us from the it-couldn't-happen-to-me mentality of the early days of the illness to the invasive result it has had on all of our lives, today. The game of the movie comes from the Fresh York Times' refusal to acknowledge homosexual relationships in their obituary section during this period. Instead, survivors were referred to as "Longtime Companions" of the deceased

Korkoro Reviews:

I've seen half a dozen or so of Tony Gatlif's movies and I've enjoyed them all - in fact his previous film, Transylvania, was my equal favorite cinema release of 2008. While Gatlif's work documents the method of the Roma (gypsies), the themes are universal: celebrations of music, culture, ethnicity and so on. It's the dramatic and visual method in which Gatlif portrays these elements that has much impact for me.Korkoro certainly doesn't disappoint. The visuals are beautifully rendered, and the frame is used wonderfully - sometimes with extreme close-ups, sometimes panoramic. Like Robert Guédiguian's recent film, The Units of Crime, the movie is set during Globe Fight II. According to the end credits, an estimated 250,000 to 500,000 of Europe's 2 million pre-war gypsies died at the hands of the Nazis. This storyline follows a wandering family of 15 of those.The Germans in occupied France decreed a law forbidding the movement of itinerants and this family search themselves stranded in a city where they seasonally perform farm work, before they are imprisoned in a camp. The family has the sympathy of the town's mayor - who provides land for the family - and the local teacher, Mademoiselle Lundi (Marie-Josée Croze), who is based on the real-life resistance warrior Yvette Lundy.I love this film. Not only does it have all the trademark Gatlif traits: wild depictions of gypsy life, wild melody and spurts of insanity, but its presentation of the rarely depicted and tragic part that the Roma played in WWII combine to create this a lovely story.Some of the visuals are amazing, like a sick horse and its gypsy treatment (it'll have you wondering how the hell they got animals to 'act'). The cinematography is superb. The acting is powerful and Croze's role is especially beautifully understated. Well worth seeing.


Tony Gatlif had already broached the topics of the gypsies in his earlier "Les Princes" (1983) or "Gadjo Dilo" (1998);sadly he never enjoyed commercial success in his native France,in spite of generally favorable reviews by critics .Himself a gypsy,he had to create a film about his folks during WW2 for it was also a genocide ,comparable to that of the Jews ;we learn that up to 25% of them were exterminated in concentration camps.Based on historical facts : the roundups by the French gendarmes in the occupied part of France and the storyline of a young resistant warrior who takes refuge in a tiny village where she has become a schoolteacher:what a humiliation it gotta be for her to have her pupils sing the notorious "Maréchal Nous Voila" (the kids scream more than they sing ,perhaps on their mistress's advice)!It's no coincidence if this anthem is followed by the tune of "Le Temps Des Cerises" the revolutionary song of La Commune De Paris (1871).Ther's a sword of Damocles hanging over the band of gypsies who are camping in the tiny village .Not only the German troops ,but also the French police ;and anyway the French accept ,cause "they wish to support the country receive rid of that vermin" ;the gypsies in France have everytime been outcasts ,they were before WW2 and they still are in 2011.There are two just folks in the village :the school teacher who welcomes the kids in her school and the mayor who gives them a house so that they will not be arrested ;a "law" forbids nomadism in the country and the notable tries to circumvent it.It's a pity that the part of the mayor (singer Marc Lavoine ,an occasional actor ,notably in Chabrol's "L'Enfer" )and of the young teacher could be underwritten. All that concerns the gypsy rings real and of course they test their own language (there's an alternative gypsy game ,used abroad).And they create unbelievable music.


The movie is a picture of history, fluidly said through effective casting and characterization, brilliant cinematography, excellent melody and constructive sound design. A lot movies that contain Nazi's have a depressing and overall massive flavor. Though this movie delves head first into the conflicts that fascism produces, the movie left me with an overall warm heart. It was not depressing after the end. The Heart in this movie overrides the nazi issues. This has much to do with the well pitched melody throughout, and the translations given of some lyrics, and the screen-time on particular powerful characters. More in focus is the union that the characters have with nature, their conviction in life and their innocence. The beauty of nature is in focus, and the insanity that humans perform in our would becomes the distant backdrop.Well done movie makers for this breath of new air. Powerful positive message about what a life can be.
