Look, Stranger movie scene

Anamaria Marinca and Tom Burke survey a war-torn landscape in Look, Stranger.

The 2010 war drama Look, Stranger is the debut feature film of New York-born Arielle Javitch, a director, producer and screenwriter.

Set in the urban wastelands and desolate forests of an unidentified country, Look, Stranger focuses on a woman (Anamaria Marinca, 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days) making a dangerous journey home from a refugee camp. When her guide is killed on the road in an arbitrary act of violence, the woman is forced to rely on an angry and disillusioned carrier (Tom Burke, Cheri), who agrees to travel with her for a price. On her journey, the woman is forced to struggle with the realities of war and a mind damaged and haunted by the past.

The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2010. Its U.S. premiere is on DVD.

In fitting with its nationally non-specific story, the film’s cast and crew hails from a number of countries, including the U.S., Serbia, Slovenia, Turkey, Germany, France, Romania, the UK, Albania, Montenegro and Bosnia.

The DVD of the unrated, English-language movie does not contain any bonus features.
