Mini TV series, adapted from the feature film with same title, winner of Palme d’or, Cannes Film Festival 1990. Directed by Emir Kusturica, director of the acclaimed When Father was Away on Business, is an extraordinary epic filled with love, hate, lust, laughter, tears, violence, magic, and much more. But like all good epics, its premise is rudimentary simple. A kindhearted Gypsy teenager, Perhan (who costarred in When Father Was Away…), and his young sister Danira are forced to be the slaves of the ruthless mafioso Ahmed, the richest man in the Skopje Gypsy ghetto. His odyssey will start in Milan, Italy, where he will be transformed into child-beggar and thief… It’s an unforgettable story with Bunuelian surrealism and John Ford’s simplicity. The masterwork of our time, now also available for television.
