Delves into the bittersweet dreams and difficulties of immigrants and the alliances they forge in order to keep their souls allive.
What a movie! This co-production from Yugoslavia / UK / France / Germany / Greece was a real life drama with few faults and lots of soul! Written by Gordan Mihic and directed by Goran Paskaljevic, at the time two of the Yugoslav movie creating legends, this movie takes you to the United States where follows immigrants (illegal and legal) living their life in the Big Apple.
The story opens in Brooklyn, across the East River from Manhattan, where the skyscrapers loom like a steel-and-concrete promise forever beyond the immigrants' reach. Bayo (Miki Manojlovic), from Montenegro, has been in the United States for less than a year, doing odd-jobs for his Spaniard friend, Alonso (amazing Tom Conti). He tries to save as much money as he can working with a crew of other illegal aliens, wearing a gas mask and cleaning up toxic waste sites. Unexpected events, spurred by the desire of Bayo's oldest son, Luka (Sergej Trifunovic), find all of his family embarking on an ocean voyage to Mexico, where a "travel guide" agrees to take them north of the border. As they cross the Rio Grande -- Bayo's youngest son is swept away in the currents, and the family's subsequent reunion becomes a sad event...
What is American Dream for these guys is not an American Dream for the others born in the USA! These people dream differently, think differently and do every single thing differently, adding colour, and passion, lots of love and action to the "black & white" dreaming time.
Lovely story, amazing acting and very solid directing with few issues with the editing and the film and cameras used. I hope you'll have a chance to see it soon!
