The plan goes awry when the promised cash never arrives. At the same time, a young Serbian immigrant named Branko struggles in a never forgiving New York, desperately trying to bring his girlfriend from Serbia to USA. Written by
to me this film came across as quiet and contemplative.
i will not get into the story here as that is for the viewer. what i want to express is the acting and pace of the movie. not an action or adventure story but a story of mind and heart. dialog is minimal. actors expressions relate so much of the story dialog is not necessary.
most people won't get it. but i found this movie to be delightful and very easy to believe each character and their emotions. this story is reflective of many lives. just plain people wanting to just live an ordinary life but survival so often dictates our direction.
and seeing Cyndie Lauper is a treat. would like to see her in more movies as i believe she could pull off a character very well.
give this film a try, plus you see NYC scenes different from most film makers.
