Subject: RE: Help: Gypsy/East European music
I know how Larry feels about Gadjo Delo, and I agree with him (after a little educative effort on his part!) that it is not at all a true representation of the Romani culture. However, on a purely artistic point, I do enjoy the movie. It is beautifully filmed and the music is wonderful. The end of the movie is especially touching, and worth sitting through the 'objectionable' parts.

If you have a chance to see it, please do. But, do keep in mind that it is just a 'story' and not anything close to being 'realistic'.
