Storyline

Embittered widower, Ludvik, spends his nights transporting illegal refugees in his van from Croatia, across Slovenia, and into Italy. The young and inexperienced Rudi acts as his helpmate. Together they become a well-trained duo who almost every night convey "spare parts" to Italy. Of course the story of their illegitimate exports into Europe ends tragically, for everyone. The whole idea of this account is that everyone - including ourselves - is looking for happiness: the "spare parts" because of the misery they are plunged into without, and our characters because they can't find it inside.

4 May 2007 | by (Silver Lake, Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

Spare Parts is a thoughtful, dramatic and very watchable movie about the smuggling of refugees, some of whom may be sold for their organs, hence the title. The main characters are the embittered smuggler and his young sidekick, who has moral objections to how they run the business. The conflict between them produces some of the best scenes of the film.

I thought the film had good production values, the kind of dialog I would expect from modern Slovenians, and a comic moment or two that kept it from being too serious. It's certainly better than most of the predictably weepy dramas coming out of Hollywood, and it has an aspect of social commentary that's welcome in a serious film.
