I just returned from seeing Korkoro and I am a maelstrom of emotions. Its short, lush scenes tell a tense tale of gypsies in WWII France, but that narrative is drowned out by its intense cinematic poetry, with odes to running, joy, anxiety, nature, novelty, bewilderment, unfairness, kindness, and music that is in your bones as much as your ears. It is gorgeous.
