Someone Else’s America

Quinzaine 1995 | Feature film | 1h31

Someone Else’s America tells the tragi-comical setbacks of two Mediterranean immigrants, Bayo and Alonso, two uprooted sentimentals lost in a lousy Brooklyn district. Alonso is an excessive, sensitive and engaging Latin, touching even in his somewhat ludicrous attitudes, even when he recreates for his blind mother an impossible return to his native Spanish village… Bayo reveals a Slavonic soul, a tragic sense of destiny, between laughter and tears. He’s a tormented soul, proud and touchy. Both cultivate nostalgia in the shade of the Manhattan skyline: a cock, a goat, a well, a stone table… Memories, tradition and mutual aid make up their everyday life, until one day, Bayo’s family unexpectedly arrives from Montenegro…
