The black and white style and locations (near-empty rooms for most scenes) give it a minimal and polished look. The story is not obvious, and the language barrier and stereotypes give it a darker "Lost in Translation" vibe. Isabel Ruth is a scene stealer as the police inspector, and Maria de Medeiros and Makena Diop, while limited by the dialogue, also make the best from their roles.
An Ukrainian woman flies in to Faro, Portugal to meet her Sengalese husband working there only to run afoul of a zealous immigration officer who doesn't believe she is just visiting. Mostly set in the offices and cells of an airport and shot in stark black and white the film's antiseptic look gives it an authenticity that is often maddening and chilling. de Medeiros is brilliant here as is Isabel Ruth.
