Quotes:

title cards:During and following the Balkan Wars of the 1990's, various types of war criminals and low level mobsters escaped to countries in Western Europe fleeing either the authorities or their enemies. Some even found their way to America, hiding out on the back streets of large cities while taking on new identities. Many more innocent people came to America dreaming of a better life and a fresh start away from all the horrors they had witnessed.

Interesting movie - good story, 22 January 2004
Author: Ron from Chicago

Great movie I find the movie very compelling. It looks like European movie. Lot of action and unexpected twists. I enjoyed realistically portrayed characters. They look like some people I know. It is a Non-Hollywood rendition of problems that really happen in today's world. I'm getting over-saturated with unrealistic story plots and fantasy characters. Reality is more interesting than that garbage. And this movie hits it pretty darn close. It is on a rare occasion that you can enjoy the grittiness of back streets and alleys, with the twisted reality that looms over the inhabitants. You can't help but to feel a sympathy with Darko (designated bad guy), and like Lana who, left with nothing, finally manages to break free. And you are on the edge of the seat the whole time. That's what I call a great movie!Summary: Go Lana go! This girl is tough, you know! To break free in spite of all the obstacles she was facing - not speaking any language, not knowing where to turn, with nobody to relay on, whoa! This movie is really something. The funny thing is that all the girls in the audience were crying, that's how strong of the impression the movie made. You enter at the opening credits, and your attention is suddenly released at the end. And you are magnetically connected the whole time. It is a BIG movie, in spite of its small budget. It is here to stay!
