  • Someone Else's America

    1995. France/Germany/Great Britain. Directed by Goran Paskaljevic. Screenplay by Gordan Mihic. English dialogue by Mary Popvic Rose. With Tom Conti, Miki Manojlovic, Sergej Trifunovic, María Casares. Someone Else's America could be everyone's: although set in Brooklyn, the film was shot in New York, Mexico, Hamburg, and Greece by a Serbian filmmaker and a Greek cinematographer, with a polyglot cast of Spanish, Yugoslavian, Chinese, and American characters. But the America imagined by Paskaljevic, drawn in dark, broad strokes in this film, is essentially an interior continent whose inhabitants are displaced and buffeted, yet hopeful. Of particular interest is the final performance of María Casares, who brings the same grace to Paskaljevic's project that she did to to the work of directors like Marcel Carné, Robert Bresson, and Jean Cocteau. In Serbo-Croatian, English; English subtitles. 96 min.
