Somebody told me it's a comedy when I decided to go for this movie. This is very untrue -- although the journey that the main characters went through was close to ridiculous, it conveyed the very sad truth in most communist (and former communist) countries -- that their people are dying to leave their country at all costs, even if they are heading towards an unknown destiny. One other message is that looks are so deceptive -- "Marilyn" is seen by everyone as a dumb, easy, indecent blonde but she is actually sweet, good-natured and pours her heart out to every stranger she meets. I wonder if that might explain the mishaps of the real Monroe too?
