Tony Gatlif’s Transylvania takes us on a musical and emotional journey to Eastern Europe

TransylvaniaTRANSYLVANIA  (15) 2006 FRANCE   GATLIT, TONY     £9.99
Impressionistic take on the road movie genre. When Zingarina (Asia Argento) arrives in the mysterious backwaters of Transylvania, she has but one thing on her mind: to find her long-lost lover Milan (Marco Castoldi), a musician who made her pregnant and then left without a word of explanation. After trawling the various clubs and bars with her sister Marie (Amira Casar), she eventually finds him, only for Milan to brutally reject her.

Totally distraught, Zingarina cuts herself loose from Marie, and everything she holds dear. Plunged into the thrumming festivities of a Romany carnival, she emerges in a daze only to be lured ever deeper into the rolling hills of Romania. It is here that she meets Tchangalo (Birol Unel), a travelling trader who takes her under his wing.

They embark on a roadtrip upon which they indulge in wild bouts of gypsy folk dance, and nights of heady passion.
