From IMDb: “Set in early 19th century Wallachia, when a local policeman, Costandin, is hired by Iordache, a boyar (local noble), to find Carfin, a Gypsy slave who had run away from the boyar’s estate after having an affair with his wife, Sultana. Costandin sets out to find the fugitive, beginning a journey full of adventures. Gypsy slavery lasted from the 14th century up until the middle of the 19th century, a situation which is very little known and almost nonexistent in the public debate today, although its impact continues to influence Romania’s social life.”

Review: Unless you’ve seen the trailer, you won’t perfectly understand this design. Hearkening back to westerns of years gone by, this colorful sunset is fascinating, but for a black-and-white film is utterly misleading.

Review: Consisting of homages to old westerns might have an appeal were it not for the admittedly fascinating black-and-white motif nor the seeming lack of adequate narrative details.
