Slovakia, 2011, 1 hour 40 minutes, Romani & Slovak with English subtitles
Life is tough for Romani teenager Adam when his father is murdered and his menacing uncle Zigo marries his grieving mother without delay. But this Hamlet-inspired storyline is subtly different from Shakespeare’s plot. The icy hostility between the Gypsies and wider society is explored through brutal encounters with the police and hospital staff. While Uncle Zigo preaches his ruthless criminal code, Adam tries to find his own path. Trying to do the right thing for his family, he soon comes into conflict with the unwritten laws of his own community. A powerful, authentic, beautifully told tale of Romani life on the edge.
