This film is about a east European coming to the west and finding the streets aren't paved with gold. The acting is good and the scenes credible and well observed. The camera work is particularly fresh and strong. What stops me giving it a higher score is that it is closer to a fly on the wall everyday documentary than a drama. Little very unexpected or unusual happens and the life of an unemployed homeless migrant worker doesn't make for that interesting a documentary. Scenes aren't linked well together and where dramatic things do happen, they are not developed in the scene, the film just quickly passes on to something else. So I think the film maker is really talented but does need to get better scripts from somewhere.
