It was raining today and a friend and I wandered into this film (by mistake!! We looked at the wrong day and thought this was a Slovak documentary) at the Trencin Film Fest in Slovakia. It was one of the most fortunate mistakes I've ever made. I am not a movie fan, but with no knowledge of the plot, etc, watching this unfold was magical. Many others have commented on the acting, the authenticity, the story. . . I concur; all converged perfectly. I felt I was there in SL, and that it wasn't a script. Truly one of the best films I've ever seen (admittedly, I see few films). So human, so true, and in the way perhaps art does best, it shined a light on a situation (economics, politics, immigration) that often fails to consider people-- individuals with dignity who bear the brunt of the economic machine's brutality. I hope this movie goes further and I will recommend it to all of my friends. Wow.
