“Caravan” by Erik Charell at Cinema Ritrovato 2018

In 1934, Fox Film Corporation releases Caravan, a musical film directed by Erik Charell. On her twenty-first birthday, countess Wilma travels to Hungary, to the house where she had spent her childhood, to claim her inheritance. At this time of the year, life at the villa orbits around the vineyard and the harvest, an activity which relies on the conjunct work of the villagers and of some superstitious practices, the most important being the aid of the gypsies, whose music will make the difference in the final outcome. A scene depicting a welcoming tasting of the house’s fines wines offers a laugh over the thirst of the characters we just met, because alcoholism is hilarious.
