Simple yet profound, Mondo follows a 10-year-old homeless Gypsy boy, Mondo (Balan), as he wanders the streets of Nice, scrounging for food and enchanting everyone he meets. In looking at the world through Mondo's eyes, Gatlif has transformed everyday objects into objects of mythical beauty. This is the type of film that should not premiere in the summer; it's too likely to be forgotten at Oscar time.
