Film series “Barvale Sam (We Are Rich!)” The Wealth of Romani Lifeworlds

ANGELO MY LOVE, 1983 (115 min) by Robert Duvall

The film is based on the lives, feuds, rivalries, and dreams of a group of New York Roma - and Duvall recruited Romanies to play themselves. His inspiration for the movie came when he saw a young boy named Angelo Evans arguing with a much older woman on a Manhattan sidewalk. Duvall liked his chutzpah and thought Angelo belonged in the movies. Though the film has its share of Gypsy stereotypes, overall it is a rich and often sympathetic pastiche of urban Romani American life.
