Dirigida por Ulrich Seidl
Austria, Eslovaquia, 2007


Dos trayectorias evolucionan en direcciones opuestas. Olga, joven enfermera ucraniana, parte a la búsqueda de la felicidad al Oeste, donde se convierte en limpiadora en Austria. Paul era agente de seguridad en Viena. Quedando en paro, toma la carretera junto a su padrastro hacia el Este.

Import/Export Dirigida por Ulrich Seidl
Mr. Seidl offers little in the way of cinematic palliatives. Yet while he’s serious, he’s also funny, with a sense of humor that skews Beckettian. (A scene in a geriatric hospital ends on a bleak if poetic note worthy of"Waiting for Godot.") He is, unlike many others, embracing the world, not in retreat.

Import/Export’s extended Internet sex scene, with its many repetitions of the line, “Put a finger in your asshole”), Seidl is easily dismissed as a misanthrope and, perhaps even more easily, defended as a closet humanist. The reality, as usual, lies somewhere in between. Seidl may best be described as a Darwinian observer, who looks at humanity the way an alien species might, honing in on our elemental urges and desires, fascinated by our awkward, fitful efforts to forge meaningful connections.

When [Paul and his stepfather] reach the Ukraine, a grand night out at the disco ends in a three-way escalation in a hotel room that—although powerful and played brillantly—for some seems like a throwback to Dog Days. Yet in the end this scene makes perfect sense as climactic expression of Seidl’s fierce humanism in the face of a world shaped by market logic and humiliation.
