Time of the Gypsies, made in 1989 directed by Emir Kusturica, is an excellent film. It was filmed entirely in the Gypsy language, and is about the transformation of a young Gypsy boy growing up in the harsh life of the Gypsies in what was then Yugoslavia.

Yes. I loved this film. Wasn't there a really interesting marriage scene in this film? Or am I thinking of another one about the Roma? I also saw 'Black Cat, White Cat' and there was another one....I feel like it had the word 'Romy' in the title. 'Black Cat, White Cat' was also very good if you enjoy films about the gypsies.

Time of the Gypsies was, I thought, wonderful. Black Cat, White Cat, much less so. Had some funny scenes, but quite thin in places, and the characters were horribly stereotyped. If you like gypsy movies, try "The Crazy Stranger" (Gadjo Dilo). It's quite remarkable. This is the third of a trilogy. I don't remember the first, but the second movie, Latcho Domo was quite wonderful also - more of a documentary than the others mentioned.

There is an Iranian movie about gypsies, it’s titled “Unfinished Song’. It’s a great gem, if off course you like Iranian movies!
