The director fell for charismatic Eugene Hütz, gypsy punk leader of the New York band Gogol Bordello. He didn't reciprocate, but he did let her film him going back to his native Ukraine. Their relationship flickers in and out of visits to gypsy camps, to his bewildered family, to guardians of traditional music who dislike Hütz's take on Roma music, finally to the gypsy grandmother in a rundown Kiev apartment who inspired him.


Contains some great musical moments, [but]] who Eugene H�¼tz really is remains tantalisingly out of reach
