  • CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Last Resort

    "Last resort" es una película que ha sido concebida con mucha sensibilidad. Lo que a primera vista parecía ser un drama realista sobre la inmigración frustrada, termina siendo una desventura con cálidas consecuencias. Aquí los personajes se encuentran por casualidad, aprenden, maduran juntos, se quieren, pelean, pero se terminan por comprender. Son humanos. Funciona casi como una road movie sin vehículo.

  • Alden's rating of the film Last Resort

    Watching the first scenes (an immigrant stuck on a british airport because of regulations) I couldn't stop thinking about the european 90s films with social critique and victimized main characters, particullary the Dardennes ones. And then I remembered why I liked those films: charming characters, immersive narrative. I just had to know their destinies, couldn't stop watching. But the end left me sort of empty-handed
