Lamerica (1994) DVD9
Lamerica takes place in Albania around 1991 when the communist government had fallen leaving thousands of poor and working class people stuck in a devastating economic limbo while a new government gets set up.
Fiore, a seasoned con man from Italy, arrives with Gino, his young apprentice, to set up a shoe factory that will never open. They designate Spiro, a confused old man in prison, as chairman of the board. While Fiore returns to Italy to get funds from the government for the project, Gino tries to track down the deranged Spiro who keeps running off. Soon he finds himself in the midst of a tide of penniless, homeless Albanians who are on their way to the port where they hope to get a ship to Italy, the promised land. The arrogant and cruel Gino is divested of his fancy car, sunglasses, clothes, and passport in a free fall into poverty.
