They are the constable Costandin and his son. Together they are searching for a gypsy slave who has run away from his nobleman master and is suspected of having an affair with the noble’s wife. On their odyssey they encounter Turks and Russians, Christians and Jews, Romanians and Hungarians. Each harbors prejudices against the others, which have been passed down from generation to generation. And even when the slave is found, the adventure is far from over. “Smart, visually arresting, and scathingly funny, Aferim! depicts a world that many American filmgoers have never seen — but will still, in many respects, find utterly familiar.” -Rotten Tomatoes Critics Consensus. “What a strange movie this is. Aferim! is funny in both senses of the word: amusing and very odd. It’s unlike any film in memory. The laughs come from our disorientation at witnessing a world that is insanely peculiar, so different from ours in its understanding of right and wrong that we sit in amazement.” –Mick LaSalle, S.F. Chronicle. Winner Silver Bear for Best Director-Berlin Film Festival.
