Vengo the film entire.

A dramatic film by Tony Gatlif, creator of the far better known Latcho Drom, the famed wordless documentary about Gypsy music.

Vengo previously on MetaFilter: La Caita. That post contained clips, this is the whole thing.

But for a taste, here is A Night In Andalusia.

Reviews: Pro. Con. Meh. Count me with the pros. The plot may be thin but the feeling is strong.

Thanks for this. The Crazy Stranger/Gadjo Dilo is one of those things I'm always telling friends to watch.

I remember Carmen Amaya well in 'Los Taranteros' she was a great woman. The Amaya family are very talented people.

I still have not forgiven Gatlif for the mess that is Transylvania...

His Korkoro is pretty good.

I don't know if I will have time for the whole movie today, but that Andalusia song has a chorus I will probably remember until I am dead.

This is actually my favourite movie ever. I started with flamenco lessons because of it.
