Unfortunately, Viktor finds himself on the wrong end of a nasty technicality while en route to America: His passport was issued from a country, which, during its upheaval, ceased to exist in an official capacity. Unauthorized to leave Kennedy Airport upon his arrival and unable to return home, Viktor finds himself exiled inside the terminal's international transit lounge. Though airport official Frank Dixon (Stanley Tucci) views Viktor as an annoying bureaucratic glitch, other airport employees -- including a beautiful flight attendant by the name of Amelia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) -- come to see him as a welcome, if unofficial, addition to their numbers. As the days stretch on into months, the terminal transforms from an intimidating atmosphere of forced assimilation into a country within itself, complete with culture, ambition, status, complex diversity, and the need for love. The supporting cast includes Diego Luna, Chi McBride, Kumar Pallana, Zoe Saldana, Eddie Jones, and Jude Ciccolella. ~ Tracie Cooper, RoviHide synopsis
A nice and a kind movie, maybe not as brilliant and stuffed with effects as other Spielberg's works. Its main idea is that people should be more human and sympathetic to each other. Though I must note a few inaccuracies in the movie. The main character, Victor, comes from an imaginary East-European country called Krakozhia. But a few details in the movie point to real countries, and in a very strange way. For example, when Victor tells his father's story, he shows an article `from a Romanian magazine'. But its title is in Russian! Then, another guy from Krakozhia comes to JFK and the airport's security boss asks Victor to be an interpreter. And what we hear after that is pure Bulgarian. Of course, such details aren't the main thing in the movie's plot. It's enough for the viewer to know that Victor comes from a post-socialist country which are many since 1990s. And, as usual, Tom Hanks' acting is great!
