Movie Review by Zara
March 14th, 2007

Sweet and Subtle

Not many people saw this movie despite the fact that it starred big names, was directed by a legend and had a big budget. You can ask most people if they remember this movie and they might do that "Who was in it?" business.

I found this movie to be quiet and good natured. There's nothing in particular which happens, a man from a small country comes into the United States to find that his country went to war while he was in the air and that his passport is no longer valid. He is pushed into the airport terminal and told to stay there until they get his passport situation taken care of.

He never pushes the issue and abides by the rules, something uncommon within the states. Most people wouldn't mind forgiving a man for breaking the rules in order to get out of an unjust situation. To stand and follow the rules despite how unfair things might be is an anomaly to Americans.

The heart of this movie is sweet. Learning what your value is and what you are capable of enduring, figuring out that you can still find the power within you to think outside of your personal wants and needs in order to help others is a great thing.

And damn... if you don't get choked up over the "They're for a goat!" then you've got no heart.
