Cose di questo mondo

This 2002 film by prolific and versatile English director Michael Winterbottom tells the story of two cousins, Jamal and Enayatullah, who live in Peshawar, on the border with Afghanistan. Enayatullah works at the market with his parents, while Jamal is an orphan, works in a brick factory and lives in the chaotic refugee camp of Shamshatoo.
Hoping to give him a better future, Enayatullah’s family decides to send him to England with Jamal, who knows a little bit of English. That’s how the two cousins join the thousands of refugees that every year put themselves in the hands of illegal human smugglers.
