amazing movie, a must watch for anyone who thinks their life sucks
22 November 2014 | by wojtekc27See all my reviews

i am so happy to find this movie again,i last watch this movie in Europe as a kid when i was only a young boy in the 1990's,i am about to re- watch it again as a adult living in Asia, lets see how it will turn out this time, i vaguely remember the story, so its going to be a great watch, lets start now,i will write more as the movie progress or when i am finished @20min of the film i love the way their park their motorcycle, hehehe so funny @44min i love the way the 2 boys reunited @125min of the movie is the most touching part, makes u want to cry,i can really feel their pain

OK the movie finished now,man it was great, i loved it, this story will really touch ur heart if u r an immigrant,most especially if u came from Europe controlled by Russians. anyways, i recommend to watch the new movie "The Immigrant" (2013) right after seeing this movie if u haven't already seen it, also i really wish that they showed more of the boys life after leaving Poland,i am really curious if the little boy really made it all the way to Louisiana USA. Its so funny to me to hear him say that, for me who have been in both places, PL and LA USA.
