Storyline

Ten-year-old Nori (Val Maloku) and his father Gezim (Astrit Kabashi) roam the streets of Kosovo selling cigarettes and barely earning a living. Only a few years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Gezim is lured west to Germany, leaving his son behind in search of a new life. Feeling deserted and desperate to claim some sense of stability, Nori embarks on a dangerous journey to Germany in search of his father. His tenacity, resilience, and sheer grit must be enough to guide him.

A Very Nice Film
20 April 2017 | by guzz62See all my reviews

If you want to watch a very nice film; this is it. Well directed, well acted, no B.S., just a good solid story, with some original scenes. The director avoids any unnecessary images, and the boy is a joy to watch. The question is, who acts the father and who acts the child? What else can I say? Oh yes; the music is good too.
