Storyline

NELU, a man in his forties, works as a security guard at a supermarket in Salonta, a small town on the Romanian-Hungarian border. This is the place where many illegal emigrants try to cross, by any means possible, to Hungary and then further to Western Europe. For NELU, days go by the same. Fishing at dawn, then work, and finally home with his wife-FLORICA. They live alone at an isolated farmhouse on the fields outside Salonta. Their problem these days is repairing the old roof of the farmhouse. One morning, NELU will fish something different out of the river: a Turkish man trying to cross the border. Not able to communicate verbally, the two men will somehow understand each other. NELU takes the stranger to the farmhouse, gives him some dry clothes, food and shelter. He doesnt really know how to help this stranger. The Turkish man gives NELU all the money he has on him so he will help him cross the border. Eventually, NELU takes the money and promises he will help him cross the ...

Border-hopping in Romania for dummies
22 May 2011 | by KnatLouieSee all my reviews

This film is about a poor farmer called Nelu, who lives near the border with his wife Florica in a broken-down house. Nelu works as a mall security-guard, well-known and liked by the people in the town. But Nelu is bored with his life, and is very annoyed at the arrogant border-guards, who harass him whenever he has been across the border to catch fish.

One day when Nelu is fishing, a strange looking foreigner (presumably an immigrant from the area around Turkey or Afghanistan) comes running along the road, and hides under a bridge until the border-guards have passed. Nelu doesn't tell them where he is, even though he's standing right in front of him, and because of this, the illegal immigrant Behran feels an automatic bond with Nelu, even though they cannot understand each other, and persuades him to help him escape. Nelu thus takes Behran to his home, and has him living in the cellar for a while. His wife Florica doesn't like this one bit, but Nelu convinces her that it is for the best, as Behran can help him do chores around the house, like fixing the roof, peeling potatoes, etc.

But as time goes along, it becomes apparent that having an illegal immigrant living in your house is not a long-term solution, and Nelu tries to get rid of Behran, helping him to escape to Northern Europe. But maybe Behran doesn't want to escape anymore, as he has found a true friend in Nelu... and this is where Nelu's troubles really begin!

Overall, I'll give this film a 7/10, as it was very heart-warming and funny, but really didn't have much progress throughout, and you quickly knew where the plot was going. The actors were great and had good chemistry, and the quirky humor worked excellent in this film.. now you definitely know what to do, and what NOT to do, if you ever stumble upon a runaway fugitive.
