Plot
Shanghai Gypsy is a love story. The main protagonists are members of the gypsy family Mirga. A story about four generations is narrated by Lutvija Belmondo Mirga. Lutvija
is the central character of the film, a gypsy king, who decided to establish his own gypsy village. He names it Shanghai. Belmondo makes a living on smuggling and his power and influence grow large. He even gets local police and politics on his side and that helps him to become untouchable for law. But with the downfall of Yugoslavia, smuggling of goods is replaced by smuggling of the arms. Though lucrative, the business starts to threaten Belmondo’s personal life and he finds himself at the crossroads. Will he protect his own family or is he going to sacrifice his personal happiness for business ambitions? The King of Shanghai is the story about eternal longing for happiness; it is the story about love and family ties, in which tears are intertwined with laughs. The story is set in times of the downfall of Yugoslavia, in times when many people had forgotten that beauty of life actually lies in small things.
