Quotes

Esther: We don't even know each other anymore, or ourselves!
Walter: When we met, we didn't know if we'd live to see the next day. We didn't know who was a comrade, who was an informant, who was there for the ride. Words meant nothing. So, we danced. When I moved, you followed. When you hesitated, I slowed down, because we could feel each other.

User Reviews

 
Beautiful, heartfelt, feel-good film with a fair dose of realism
20 December 2020 | by org1andrewSee all my reviews

This film is really well made. The interactions feel real. The acting is incredible. The story is unique compared to other low-key struggling-to-survive-in-the-big-city films-and it's really a lot more about the difficult sacrifices the characters had to make prior to the start of the film. It pulls you in quickly and keeps you entertained.

I'm not much of a reviewer, but I encourage anyone reading this to watch this film. It's definitely one of my cinematic highlights of 2020.

I'm not sure how representative it is of new immigrant refugee families in the USA-it's perhaps a bit too optimistic in its message-but in these dark times, sometimes that's what the audience wants.
