The ambient fury of the director James Gray's teeming historical drama is built into the very fabric of his tensely unbalanced wide-screen images.
An old-fashioned but subdued melodrama, with a pleasingly ripe musical score and scenes full of big emotions performed at a hushed pitch.
The shock of the old made new, a miracle achieved, a great movie rising before me-like a delusion, like a dream.
Some of the film scenes fall flat, but, after all, the American Dream is of a future in which one never loses hope.
The harrowing story of a Polish nurse who struggles to survive and keep her soul alive in 1921 New York.
In its stripped-down realism and blistering fixation on its main character's grappling with life and mortality, the film is kin to Roberto Rossellini's collaborations with Ingrid Bergman.
It's just a shame that Cotillard's impressive performance isn't hung on a more vibrant story.
For the most part The Immigrant is works in an incredibly satisfying and affecting manner.
