Painting a portrayal of a doomed group of Iranian illegal immigrants in Athens, “L'Escale” examines the radical choice of pursuing a better life through the most perilous of possibilities: clandestinely. Equally filled with humour and bitterness, the film profoundly captures the insecurity of people desperate to make a new life for themselves, yet hampered by a system seemingly designed to be impenetrable.
