Time of the Gypsies Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Perhan ([[Performer~P20450~Davor Dujmovic~davordujmovic]]) is a Gypsy teenager with the ability to move objects with his mind. A criminal named Ahmed convinces him to leave his devoted grandmother ([[Performer~P420~Ljubica Adzovic~ljubicaadzovic]]) and loving girlfriend, and to use his powers to make some money illegally. While becoming a man and learning the trade of crime, the boy searches for his sister (who was supposed to have a leg operation) and tries to save money to realize his fantasy of returning home to marry the woman of his dreams. This film won [[Performer~P98330~Emir Kusturica~emirkusturica]] an award at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival for his direction and was the first feature to be filmed with its entire dialogue in the Gypsy language, Romany. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
