    Plus 1. Yeah thanks for the link Bopster. Great film. Wow, how crappy must it have been during WW2 for the Sinti community if they STILL have to put up with the occasional idiot/jerk. It's hard for me to imagine someone directing that kind of racist crap toward an individual like Paulus Schafer who is an absolute world class treasure and just an exceptional human being. Some people are really lame.

    Are there more parts to the series?
  • Thanks for this, really a very compelling film

    @Bones - there are other films about Roma, just do a search on the website with “Roma” or “Gypsy.”

    I had never heard a more eloquent explanation of respecting traditions, than from the woman the director was pestering about the “beer.”
