Import Export
Filmfest 2010

IMPORT EXPORT tells two stories which move in diametrically opposed directions: one is about Olga, a nurse from deepest Ukraine, the other about Paul, an unemployed security guard from Vienna. Olga seeks her fortune in the West and ends up working as a cleaner in a geriatrics clinic in Austria, while Paul and his step-father wind up in the Ukraine looking for work and a meaningful life. Ulrich Seidel "Seidl's eye for the grotesque makes him the Diane Arbus of world cinema, and this was often startling, horrible and brillant." The Guardian, Peter Bradshaw
