a glimps of the paradise?, 19 May 2002
Author: Birgitte Lausten from Madrid, Spain

watching escape to paradise is a film I think more people ought to do in these days of xenophobia creeping up everywhere in Europe. It tells the story of a kurdish family seeking asylum in Switzerland - "paradise", the meeting with the new system, more people who has escaped from some of the other burning points of the world, the question if it is even possible to escape from your memories. The film in some way seem like a documentary, which also seems to be the goal, as the director has used a concept called Real Acting, using people who has actually been in these situations but acting a paper. Thought provocing, and interesting, definately worth of seeing - but mostly for the story.
