Show Synopsis

Shot almost entirely on a two-and-a-half-story recreation of a full-size operating airport terminal, this romantic comedy from director Steven Spielberg revolves around an Eastern European man by the name of Viktor Navorski (Tom Hanks), whose plans of immigrating to New York were hastened by a violent coup in his home country.

A nice movie, a few inaccuracies

A nice and a kind movie, maybe not as brilliant and stuffed with effects as other Spielberg's works. Its main idea is that people should be more human and sympathetic to each other.
Though I must note a few inaccuracies in the movie. The main character, Victor, comes from an imaginary East-European country called Krakozhia. But a few details in the movie point to real countries, and in a very strange way. For example, when Victor tells his father's story, he shows an article `from a Romanian magazine'. But its title is in Russian! Then, another guy from Krakozhia comes to JFK and the airport's security boss asks Victor to be an interpreter. And what we hear after that is pure Bulgarian.
Of course, such details aren't the main thing in the movie's plot. It's enough for the viewer to know that Victor comes from a post-socialist country which are many since 1990s.
And, as usual, Tom Hanks' acting is great!
