The Crazy Stranger is a 1997 award-winning film directed by Tony Gatlif. The original title of the film is Gadjo Dilo which means "Crazy non-Gypsy" in the Romanian language. Most of the film was shot in Cretulesti, a small Gypsy village near Budapest, and many local Romani people play parts in the movie. In this film, a young, naive French man travels to Romania wandering and searching for his recently deceased father's favorite singer, a well-known Gypsy vocalist. In the process of searching for the singer to create the first recording of her voice, he stays in this Romanian village for several months. At first, the village dislikes and distrusts this odd visitor. They soon grow to accept him and integrate him into the daily life of the village, even the most beautiful woman in the village. There may even be a surprising, unexpected story of love in this Romanian village.
