Import Export (2007)

()

Coming at November 9, 2007 in theaters

Drama

Import/Export is drama film by the director Ulrich Seidl from 2007. It was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and won the Grand Prix – Golden Apricot reward at the Yerevan International Film Festival.

It is winter and people are freezing. It is so in Ukraine. The east looks like the west, the west looks like the east. In this atmosphere, two stories emerge in a way that, at first glance, does not seem to relate them. One story is import: it starts in Ukraine and goes to Austria. The other is export: it starts in Austria and ends in Ukraine. The first introduces Olga, a young nurse and mother. She wants more out of life, she wants to leave the city, to leave the country. She decides to go to Austria.

In that foreign country, she finds work and then loses it. She starts as a housekeeper and ends as a cleaner in a geriatric hospital. The other story is about Paul, a young Austrian. He finally gets a job as a security guard, but gets fired almost immediately. His stepfather takes him to Ukraine to work on the installation of betting machines. Import Export deals with sex and death, living and dying, winners and losers, power and impotence, and it’s about how to professionally clean a stuffed fox’s teeth.
