Trailer

Robert, a jaded middle-aged New Yorker, goes to Serbia to make quick cash by marrying someone for U.S. immigration papers, but the plan goes awry when the promised cash never arrives. At the same time, a young Serbian immigrant, Branko — “man with a van”, struggles in a never forgiving New York, desperately trying to bring his girlfriend from Serbia to USA.

„Los Angeles Times” wrote about this film: “«Here and There» is a wisp of a wry comedy but Lungulov's touch is delicate, even piercingly so, and his direction of actors, especially Thornton and Karanović, is beautifully nuanced.”
