RADU JUDE

Set in early 19th century Romania, a policeman, Costandin, is hired by a nobleman to find a Gypsy slave who has run away from his estate after having an affair with his wife. Together with his son, they set out in search for the gypsy slave. While the unflappable Costandin comments on every situation with a cheery aphorism, his son takes a more contemplative view of the world. On their odyssey they encounter people of different nationalities and beliefs: Turks and Russians, Christians and Jews, Romanians and Hungarians. Each harbors prejudices against the others, which have been passed down from generation to generation.

“Shot in black and white with fade-out transitions, the movie harks back to classic westerns. But it's also distinctly modern.”- Stephanie Merry, Washington Post

 “With a title that translates roughly as Attaboy!, this engaging and percipient period comedy focuses on the enslavement of the Roma people in 19th-century Romania.”- Leah Pickett, Chicago Reader
