poignant and funny, intelligent and moving
7 October 2006 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

A great film, with excellent actors. A "mosaic" with a number of plots skilfully joined together (maybe the way they do is a bit unrealistic, but strange things do happen in real life). The topic (the hardship of immigrants' life, prostitution, addiction to gambling etc.) may be off-putting, but surprisingly the filmmakers use it to prove that one can remain humane in inhumane conditions. Even the most likable characters here have their "flaws", which makes them believable. We relate to them and attach to them emotionally - this is why the film "stays" with you long after you leave the cinema. An eye-opener for those who don't care much about all those foreigners from poorer countries who are "mushrooming" in their affluent ones. The problem is I'm not sure if such people would be interested in seeing such a movie, but I do hope so.
