Queen of the Gypsies (Russian: Табор уходит в небо, lit. "The gypsy camp goes to heaven"; also known as Gypsies Are Found Near Heaven) is a 1975 Soviet film by Emil Loteanu, loosely based on various works by Maxim Gorky. Set in early 20th century Austria-Hungary, the film tells the love story between the gypsy girl Rada and the horse thief Zobar of Gorky's early 1892 short story "Makar Chudra" (Russian: Макар Чудра).
One of the songs near the introduction of the film had become popular on YouTube as the "Gypsie Song".
It was the most attended movie in the Soviet Union in 1976, with 64.9 million tickets sold.
