Warm and brutal at the same time
14 June 2007 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about a Ukrainian woman going to Belgium illegally to reunite with her husband.

I particularly like the performance of the mother, who has to poke her nose into everything. She is so natural and human. Miguel is also a likable character, amplified by his mishaps and by his carefree attitude to almost everything. His kindness is also deeply touching, but probably not as realistic in modern day life. The ending is rather brutal. Sometimes the truth is not the way we want it to be. The little girl, Laura's state of mind is also portrayed well, and her turmoil of seeing a parallel story of her own is striking. I find this film warm and brutal at the same time.
