The Immigrant functions quite impressively as a character piece (or pieces, as the film is as much about Bruno as Ewa), a condemnation of the subjugation of foreigners and as a uniquely beautiful period piece.
What's difficult to encapsulate is the vivid emotion that underpins this story, or the depths suggested by the close-ups of the remarkable Cotillard that explain her complex state as well as recalling the golden era of 1930s Hollywood cinematography.
Gray creates impeccable period detail here, recalling the graceful, masterly images from The Godfather Part II. He gets flawless performances from his actors, especially Cotillard, who is forced to keep so much inside.
