Genre: Drama

Duration: 103 mins


Summary: The latest film from Tony Gatlif (Gadjo Dilo, Latcho Drom, Exiles) features Asia Argento in the role of Zingarina (literally ‘little gypsy’), a woman who travels to Transylvania, deep in the heart of Romania and the Romany Gypsy community, in search of her lover and father of her unborn child, Milan (Marco Castaldi – the real-life father of Asia’s six-year-old daughter Anna Lou). In Gatlif’s evocatively shot and spirited, music-driven odyssey, however, it is the rough charm of a loner named Tchangalo (Birol Unel, last seen in Fatih Akin’s impressive Head On) that appears set to have a more profound impression upon Zingarina
