Between Two Fires (2010)

Directed by: Agnieszka Lukasiak
Country: Poland/Sweden

Plot: A young mother with her daughter escapes Belarus just to end up in a refugee camp in northern Sweden.
Quick comment: A distressful story about a mother and her daughter, trying to escape from Belarusian Mafia to avoid sexual and physical abuse. Once in Sweden, hoping to be given permission to stay, they will not rest as expected. The film centers on the refugee’s problems in a legit way. But in the other hand, it’s frustratingly invariable in its suspenseful moments and lingers too much over sex scenes. You will not be disappointed, but you will not be asking for more either.
