In 2006, Director Tony Gatlif and composer Delphine Mantoulet won the "Georges Delerue Prize" at the Flanders International Film Festival for the score, and Gatlif was nominated for the "Grand Prix" award. Transylvania premiered at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival in France on May 28, and premiered in the United States on March 16, 2007 at the Cleveland International Film Festival and in the United Kingdom at the Cambridge Film Festival on July 6, 2007 (with a later theatrical release on August 10, 2007).
Transylvania the story of Zingarina (Asia Argento), a rebel Italian girl who travels to Transylvania with her best friend Marie (Amira Casar) and a young interpreter Luminita (Alexandra Beaujard) seeking for her enamoured one Milan Agustin (Morgan), who has been expelled from France, the country where they had known each other and fallen in love. She knows he's a road musician and works in a gipsy violinist band. Zingarina finds him during a pagan festival (Herod's Feast), but Milan says to her that their lovestory is over. The girl, angry and deluded, doesn't want to return to France and, during her senseless travel through the boulevards and the villages, meets Tchangalo (Birol Unel), a charming and travelling merchant of a Turkish descent.
