“Vengo,” Spanish Gypsy Flamenco Film Reply

Tony Gatlif's "Vengo"

We’ve already published an extract from this passionate French film shot in Spanish about a Gypsy blood feud, but we suspect you may enjoy seeing the complete version. Antonio Canales, one of Spain’s great flamenco dancers, plays Caco, a Gypsy patriarch who runs  a whorehouse (“lupanar” in Spanish, “fox den”). Destroyed by the death of his daughter he drowns his sorrow in alcohol and bacchanalia against a backdrop of blood and revenge. The film  pays homage to the Gypsies of Spain’s south, with lots of great flamenco guitar, song, and particularly dance.
