Princes (Les)

cast: Gérard Darmon, Muse Dalbray, Dominique Maurin

year: 1982

colour: yes

certificate: 15

director: Tony Gatlif

runtime: 99

First movie of Tony Gatlif's trilogy on the Gypsy people. It was followed by Latcho Drom (1993) and Gadjo dilo (1997). The unaffected tale of gypsies stuck in a dreary housing estate in the Paris suburbs; like the grass that grows in the cracks in the concrete, they are wild and unruly, always threated with eviction. Highly critically-acclaimed, yet rarely screened in the UK, The Princes is a key piece of Gatlif's filmic oeuvre.
