You know.. I am watching this film again. It has been nearly ten years and I can't help feeling so bad. There are films you feel that you never can forget. This is such a film.
The film is about a handful of Turkish people from rural areas who are driven to Stockholm where they will find a job. They are deceived by the driver and left all alone trapped in the bus in an open area in Stockholm. The rest of the story unfolds tragically as each character (there are 9) gets out of the bus to find food and face Europe in an unexpected way.
This film is about how Europe is hypocritical about many things especially about strangers. This is not for Europeans only it is all about us who feel looked down on by any reason within a society...it is about alienation.
It is a must-see. I am proud of this film and I highly recommend it.
