Latcho Drom / Safe Journey / Film / 1993

A pure joy to watch. Latcho Drom, Rom for “safe journey” is a documentary style dramatization of the culturally rich travels, singing and dancing of Romany groups from Rajahstan (India), Egypt, Turkey, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, France, and Spain. The music, oh my sweet father, the music is sublime, the visuals, even at its starkest this is a feast for the eyes.  After almost countless viewings I never get tired of this beautiful film by Tony Gatlif.
