The Funeral of the Last Gypsy King

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

On a cold, windy day, the villagers attend the funeral of Laszlo Ferencs, the last and only Gypsy musician in the town. At his graveside, the wind blows so powerfully that no one can hear the priest's funeral oration. Far on the other side of town, people are going about their daily business. Through their windows creeps a strange music, the last reminder of the dead musician, which gradually lifts their spirits.
