Import/Export * Ulrich Seidl (2007)

In this in-your-face film we follow two persons. Olga is an Ukrainian young woman who has a hard time raising the money she needs to take care of her baby and her mother. Besides her job at a hospital, Olga pursues other lines of work and eventually tries her luck in Wien/Vienna.

In Wien, Paul has a similarly hard life with debts and unemployment, His inflammatory character does not help. In the end, he ends up in… Ukraine.

In long and minimalist scenes shows the bleak lives of both youngsters with confrontational details. Indeed, not exactly a feel-good-movie. It is not like “Import/Export” is a depressive film though. One you have to be in the mood for to watch perhaps though.
