Toto and His Sisters is an observational documentary following three Roma children as they go through existential problems such as poverty, drugs and prison, but it also focuses on some beautifully touching moments in their lives. [...] The images of poverty and drug use are hard-hitting, but are interspersed with moments of joy and love. This balance makes for a deeply touching experience, as beautiful moments such as Toto's discovery of his talent for dancing, and the sincere affection between Toto and Andreea, who are very close and are taking care of each other, are rare compared to the predominant feeling of depravity and suffering - but that is what makes them all the more effective.
