Beschrijving:The film is an extract from the Gypsies' way of living, dedicated to the celebration of the "St. George's Day" holiday. The theme of the film deals with the contrasts of the contemporary urban processes. Also, the film expresses a many-sided iconography as a source for incarnation of the romantic comprehension of life, without any obstacles. The balladic atmosphere conjures up the reminiscences of the distant myths. This poetic vision on the life of the last nomads is shot in the authentic milieu of Gypsies' camp shortly before the celebration of their greatest holiday. An atavistic characteristics of their beliefs are: the ritual bathing, as a symbol of body&soul purifying; then, the mystery of childbirth and the life desire, without restraints, attack upon the audiences' senses, never leaving them indifferent.
