Shanghai Gypsy


Shanghai Gypsy, a Slovenian film (2012) directed by Marco Nabersnik and starring Visar Vishka, Asli Bayram among others. Basically it is a story of four generations of gypsy family in the then Yugoslavia. Grandfather marries a gypsy who had previous marriages and five children in toto. They live a hard life selling this trinkets and that and too often doing illegal activities. Son follows in his footsteps and so do grand son, Lutvija (Visar Vishka). He falls in love with Amanda (Asli Bayram, looking gorgeous in her role) and continues with smuggling activities. They grow their lives, becomes rich, does international smuggling and gets caught in an arms racket. His son is interested in only music and does not follow in his father’s footsteps. Lutvija meanwhile goes to prison and son goes into drugs. Ultimately all get united and have a good time. Nice movie to watch.
