The official Slovak entry for the Academy Awards, this poignant humanist drama follows a young boy who must learn how to overcome the racial, cultural, and social prejudices that impact himself and his Roma community.
Set in impoverished Roma settlement, and using the structure of Shakespeare's Hamlet, the film captures a specific way of life without placing it behind glass. "A keen sensitivity to its moral difficulties and enlivening details sets Gypsy urgently apart." - Michelle Orange, Village Voice
