A cute entertaining little movie story
I've read a couple of disappointing reviews about this movie, and I simply don't agree. This is a fine little cute movie to keep you entertained and interested up to the last scene. A reviewer from Serbia calls the Hollywood people 'dopes' for casting Genevieuve Busold as the gypsy girl. I understand there are a lot of gypsies in Serbia, but he -the reviewer- fails to realize that the point of this film is not to show a real gypsy (this is not a documentary, and even so, if they wanted that would be real easy) but to depict characters and personalities. The film succeeds very well on that, and Busold, as also Jack Lemmon, are excellent in their roles.

A middle-age conservative man falls in love with a free living gypsy girl. When she runs away he becomes obsessed with finding her. What story can be simpler and so interested, in the same time?

I watched this movie back in 1978 when I was living in Canada, and I still remember it very well. Since then, I am looking forward to watch it (somehow/somewhere) again.

If you want to see real gypsies you can opt for a Koustouritsa film, but that's not my piece of cake. As a matter of fact, I prefer Hollywood movies to European crap cinema.
