Storyline

Nana, fleeing the upheavals in the former Soviet republic that is her home, heads for the USA, where she has an uncle. Her plan is thwarted when her travel documents are inspected at Vienna airport and revealed as forgeries. Nana manages to escape from the transit lounge at the airport and, now instantly transformed into an illegal immigrant, relies on her wits and the kindness of strangers (typically, lonely men) as she makes her way west. Written by Denis Le Cam

Good film
10 February 2001 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

Nana is a middle-aged woman, who desperately wants to leave the Soviet Union. She wants to visit her uncle in Los Angeles, and, ostensibly, defect. As the movie opens, she's detained in an Austrian airport, because her passport is forged. Frightened to return to Russia and desperate to get to America, she escapes from the airport and becomes a fugitive. She doesn't speak the language and knows no one, and must use her fierce determination to avoid capture and try to get to her destination.

This is a very interesting film that never drags, but it's not very emotionally involving. It hold Nana at arm's length, which is good in that it never becomes maudlin or melodramatic, but that prevents the audience from emotionally connecting with her. I definitely recommend it, though. It's very good.
