The Crazy Stranger

1997 NR

In director Tony Gatlif's award-winning 1998 film, a young French man travels to Romania in search of his recently deceased father's favorite singer, a legendary Gypsy vocalist. In hopes of tracking her down and recording her music, he ingratiates himself with the local Gypsy community. Initially suspicious of the stranger, the villagers gradually come to accept him. He, in turn, soon falls in love with one of them, a beautiful, spirited dancer.
