Cert: 15 Year: 2000 Length: 77 mins
A young Russian woman arrives in Britain with her ten-year-old son. She mistakenly applies for political asylum and thus begins a desperate struggle for survival. Pawlikowski's graceful, economic style augments the perfect performances of Korzun and Considine. At last, a British film that has something powerfully pertinent to say about contemporary Britain.

This is the best class of poetic realism, the kind you can believe in without a trace of hesitation.
