Little Odessa

James Gray

Without batting an eyelid, Joshua Shapira has just killed a man on a park bench when he re-ceives his next job by pubic telephone: "Brooklyn. An Iranian jeweller is giving us problems." Joshua knows that Brooklyn is not good for him: This is where he is from, his family live here. But he still owes his client something. Barely back in Brighton Beach, the disaster takes it course – the ice-cold killer cannot resist stopping in front of the window of his parents' home. He is seen … Brighton Beach is a metro station in Brooklyn, which catapults you into a different world: Shop signs, restaurants, newspapers – everything in Russian. The New York skyline is only seen in the background. Seagulls on the beach, broad expanses of wasteland, large red-brick buildings, small detached houses, with tiny gardens where the washing is drying and which offer a wonderful backdrop to the final showdown. Gray's highly praised début is a great drama with excellent performances, which won the Sil-ver Lion at the 1994 Venice Film Festival. _Festivals u.a.:_ _- Deauville Film Festival: Critics Award_ _- Toronto International Film Festival_ _- Venice Film Festival: best supporting actress (Vanessa_ _Redgrave)_
