I was so pumped to see Lost in Translation because I really like films like Garden State and Closer and I was told Lost in Translation was in the same mold. I watched Lost in Translation and even as the movie ended I remember thinking; "Ok . . . when does this movie actually start."
Gypsies are commonly refered to Middle-Eastern nomadic people in the Balkans (Balkans refers to countries such as Albania, Macedonia, Greece, Serbia) - a region where everyone hates one another.
But, where I come from these Gypsies, who are believed to be from mostly of Indian descent, are usually beggars, scam artist, and part of the lower class.
Even when I see Indian people in America, I just refer to them as Gypsies, and thus, the stereotypes and stigmas about them come into mind. I know its stupid to have a bad stereotype about them, but I would be lying if I told you if I didn't hink this way.
so then, where are from?
On a side note about them movies, never seen Big Lebowski but I thought lost in translation was nice. Nothing special but nice. It turned out to be more of a chick flic in the end though
