Storyline

"Immigrant" is the coming of age story of Daanyik, a nine year-old Russian boy, whose family immigrates to the United States in the late nineteen-seventies to pursue the American Dream. Daanyik's childhood of pencil drawings and toy soldier battles in Moscow is interrupted overnight as he is hurled into the harsh reality of adulthood in New York City. Upon losing his father Deema, Daanyik and his mother, Meela, are left poor, alone and helpless in a foreign land. Out of desperation for survival, Meela begins a relationship with Tolik, an abusive man that may have had a hand in Deema's death. Daanyik finds himself trapped in a precarious web of torment brought on by his new stepfather, a lecherous Rabbi and a neighborhood bully. Drawing becomes his only source of comfort and catharsis. As his battles grow fiercer, Daanyik, at the tender age of nine, is left to overcome insurmountable odds to save himself and his mother from complete destruction. Written by Anonymous

Terrible film
7 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with everything the first reviewer said about this film. I hope that the filmmaker found it to be a therapeutic process because otherwise, it's a very amateurish poorly crafted film. It's OK that the entire film is depressing, but none of the elements (cinematography, music, editing, acting, directing) made it interesting, so it's dark and boring. Even the titles looked cheap. The use of black and white footage was a colossal mistake. Another reviewer said it was "like scene changes in a play while the set is being switched." Paul Sorvino and Andrew Divoff were good, but even so, their performances couldn't save this sinking ship. The fighting amongst the classroom children looked incredibly fake. The director should cut out all of the black and white footage, shoot some great looking exterior shots, put in some music that actually contributes to the story, re-edit the film, ADR a lot of the dialog and then he'd have a better product, otherwise, if I HAD to see this, I'd rather just see a version of it as a play because that's what it felt like. The director kept switching from one interior to another without even using establishing shots.
