The gypsies and the others.
To my knowledge ,the first French movie which deals with the gypsies condition ;the movie begins with a police raid ,in the middle of the night,to check if they have their papers .

This is a first tentative movie;there are actually three main themes

1) The Holy script ,seen by the gypsies ,doing a passion play their way

2)Two children discovering the "other" world ,the "normal one" ,the cars ,the shops;when we leave the camp,Schmidt uses a generic score ,but when we comes back to it ,gypsy music and songs are heard .

3)A defiant girl (the hot Catherine Rouvel) who rebels and does not want the man she MUST marry and flees to the city in order to find work :the scene in employment agency shows the gulf between an illiterate gypsy girl and the people from the city .

Supervised by former lawyer director André Cayatte ,the movie uses Professional actresses such as Germaine Kerjean and Lila Kedrova.
