Movie Info

Robert (character actor David Thornton) is a grumpy burned-out musician, trying to survive in Manhattan. When his fed-up friend Rose (Thornton's real-life wife Cyndi Lauper in a small role) throws him out of her apartment, the destitute Robert reluctantly makes a deal with the young Serbian, Branko (Branislav Trifunovic), who's moving his stuff out. For a hefty fee, Robert agrees to fly to Belgrade and marry Branko's girlfriend, Ivana (Jelena Mrdja), so that she can move to New York. Branko

Deserves all the attention it can get.

Lungulov's touch is delicate, even piercingly so, and his direction of actors, especially Thornton and Karanovic, is beautifully nuanced.

In the end, the film has more than a few moments that linger: like slivovitz, it sneaks up on you.

The Here and There script is borderline clichéd, and it makes getting a US visa seem way too easy.

The big question isn't whether middle-aged romance will bloom, but rather, how much sub-Jarmusch deadpan humor and pathos can you take?

There's pleasure in watching the conceit unfold, which is sweetened by an unexpectedly poignant payoff.

A quietly amusing minimalist tale of a grouch who finds he's still capable of pleasure.

In a way, the fact that the grey, austere Serbian city is such an odd choice for the middle-age romance "Here and There" is one of the film's charms.

Although teetering on the brink of soppiness in places, and treading a well-worn path, the soft-in-the-middle script is lifted immeasurably by towering performances.

Sometimes aimlessness is a legitimate subject (like in The Station Agent) and sometimes it's an excuse for a director to lazily slap together a movie that he hasn't thought much about.

Enjoyable and accomplished.

Here and There feels exactly like an amateur effort from a first-time director.

Audience Reviews for Here and There

This awkward, unusual indie drama caught me by surprise. Right from the start I was drawn in, and I'm not even sure why. It's very slow moving, and rather strange, but for some reason I was hooked. I have to say that I kind of liked it.....p.s. Cyndi Lauper has a minor role, and it appears the main character is her husband in real life.
