Nice idea, bad acting and an unrealistic plot
15 November 2009 | by slititreSee all my reviews

The idea behind the scenario is actually very mundane , to show the integration and assimilation problems during the immigration. The idea might be well-meant but it still could not detain the disaster and crap-piece which is made. The acting, the story, the screen writing everything aside from the "main idea" showed us how a movie shouldn't be made.I watched this movie not with great expectations but like every movie viewer ,I wanted to have a good time. I thought that there were at least some good actors, excluded an unexperienced director. The movie is not as bad as I am describing it but the continuing bad acting, unnecessary scenes which made the movie even more boring and worse and the unrealistic plot made me almost screaming "please shut the movie down" which did not happen. My comments might sound subjective and insulting but I am not criticizing the story or the "idea" , I am just criticizing the way it was made. It is of course normal, that a such unexperienced directer can not create a masterpiece in his first movie, but this is just a comment and so I am not bound to encourage directors thats why I absolutely do not advise this film , it is , informally said , a waste of time.
