| The seeking of asylum is a soul experience
This is a beautiful film and its sad but yet uplifting story of asylum seeking engaged me compellingly from its very first frame, deeply reaching in a series of thoughtfully cut scenes, constantly keeping our attention and involvement inquisitively. Nothing in this film's portrayal is superfluous. The acting is strong and the film is superbly cast and extraordinarily well edited. In 85 minutes a deeply meaningful and humane story unfolds. A revealing insight to the seeking of and longing for compassion and a new life by two human souls, who meet in a suspended no-man's land, in which they come together through the experience of different but also sharing human circumstances.
