It's a good thing this immigrant drama boasts a heroic central performance---that of Anne Coesens as Tania, a Belarusian mom detained by Belgian authorities and resistant to their brutal inquiries. Otherwise, we'd be talking about a lot of drab jail interiors and offscreen beatings. Illegal has caused a stir in Belgium, and the sincerity of the movie can't be denied. But there's little emotion to hold on to, apart from a mother's impotent concern about her wayward teenage son (Gontcharov), still on the outside.
