A man, who becomes mistaken for his brother who was immigrating to Israel from USSR, finds himself caught up in the middle of a bureaucratic mess when he realizes that if he tells the truth about who he is, he will go to jail and his brother’s family will never be allowed to leave the USSR. He therefore assumes his brother’s identity to get to Israel hoping his distant uncle living there will help him out. The plan backfires, however, when he realizes that the uncle is a paranoid lunatic thinking the KGB is out to get him. He becomes stranded in Israel with no friends, no money, and no passport, trying to figure out a way to get back home.
The Passport – excellent movie, one of the best released in 1990 Most movies, even the greatest ones, evaporate like mist once you’ve returned to the real world; they leave memories behind, but their reality fades free quickly. But not The Passport. The Passport is a long movie, with the space and leisure to expand and explore its themes.
It is a movie that truly knows what it is and wastes not even a second in conveying what that is. I did not know anything about this movie before, I did not even see a trailer, but I enjoyed it very much in the first place. Special effects, action and characters give this high rating.
…Damn, I need to watch these movie online again. It was so good! I haven’t found this full movie anywhere else so I uploaded it here on YesMovies, now you can see this movie online for free.
