Rating: 4/5 -- The war hovers, its intrusions and dangers giving the story tension and a minute-by-minute poignancy: these lives, we're aware, may all too soon be erased. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- While much of Korkoro avoids stylistic flourishes, Gatlif picks his moments to use cinematic language to revel in the terror his characters experience. Full Review

Despite some flaws, this is one of the more important films likely to be seen in 2011 since it deals with a people who are facing brutal discrimination all across Europe. Full Review

Rating: 8/10 -- Reminding the world of the Roma Holocaust. . .lovely film is as life-affirming as it is sad. If rated, it would be at most PG-13 and deserves to be seen by a wide audience. Full Review

Product Description:

A Gypsy family and a young orphan drift through the French countryside during World War II and seek work in the vineyards of a small town with laws strictly forbidding their nomadic lifestyle. Subsequently placed in an internment camp, the wayward travelers are quickly rescued by the town's sympathetic mayor, who bestows upon them a plot of land where they can live without fear of harassment. Later, as the Gypsies grow increasingly uncomfortable with the prospect of living in one place, the Gestapo arrests the mayor and a local teacher for resistance. Fearing that they, too, are about to lose their freedom should they decide to remain in town, the Gypsies quickly decide that their best option is to try their luck on the road, and they quietly take flight.
