Gypsies (Czech: Cikáni) is a 1922 Czech silent drama film directed by Karl Anton and starring Hugo Svoboda, Olga Augustová and Theodor Pistek.

It is an adaptation of the 1835 novel Cikáni by Karel Hynek Mácha. Along with Anton's later silent The May Fairy, it is credited with initiating the tradition of lyricism in Czech cinema.[1]
