2019 | Dir Andreas Horvath | 130min | Austria
Lillian (Patrycja Planik), an emigrant stranded in New York City, decides to walk back to her native Russia. She resolutely starts out on the long journey. A road movie straight across the USA into the freezing temperatures of Alaska. The chronicle of a slow disappearance. An impressively photographed and enigmatic road movie based on the true story of Lillian Alling, who disappeared without trace in 1926 while attempting to walk home to Russia from New York. Marked by awe-inspiring images of natural beauty, a powerful soundtrack composed by the director and quirky, telling encounters. English with some subtitles.
“The more Lillian heads into the winter wilderness the more attractive the film becomes. Ultimately Horvath manages to find an epic grandeur in the simple story of a woman just trying to make her way home.” – Allan Hunter, Screen International.
