Contrasting visions of world cinema
AUSTRIA | 128 minutes | 2019
After being turned down for a job in the American porn industry, a penniless young woman decides to head home to Russia on foot. Her seemingly crazy undertaking was actually inspired by the mysterious disappearance of Lillian Alling in 1927. In this Austrian drama, fictional yet shot like a documentary, the story is transposed to a contemporary setting and relies on a captivatingly bare-bones script and dialogue. A mesmerizing road movie that doubles as a portrait of American materialism seen through the eyes of one woman, played by the fascinating Patrycja Planik."Horvath manages to find an epic grandeur in the simple story of a woman just trying to make her way home." Screendaily
