NO LONGER RENTABLE

Ikendu (Koudous Seihon) is a refugee from Mali, Patricia (Linda Olsansky) is a Czech, single mother of two daughters. They each live on the margins of society in the conformist, Italian-speaking part of Switzerland. Patricia seeks love and does so with a fury that verges on naivety. Ikendu wants a new life. They meet and very quickly choose to link their destinies together in the belief that it will help them to escape from the ghosts of their pasts. Their relationship blossoms into marriage and a carefree life – so it seems.
The acting is wonderful, the relationship is sincere, the film’s direction (Rolando Colla) is sensitive and the harsh reality of immigrants coming to Europe is well conveyed. This is a story of two people who find each other in a world in which they have no part. A film of many layers and one to watch out for.
