P.S.: I originally named this film after a
Romani proverb about how to cope when life doesn't deal you a straight hand ("You cannot walk straight when the road bends"). So the film title began as "When the Road Bends... tales
of a Gypsy Caravan." However, brevity and the marketplace have prevailed so that it is being released simply as "Gypsy Caravan" in many places. Sorry about the confusion, but it is all the same movie and I hope you enjoy it.
