The promised lives in The Terminal, a hard time of Victor Navorski (Tom Hanks) to make his father last wish, He has come to New York City, until decided to go home. Suddenly his home land Krakozhia had erupted in civil war, this create a logistical problem with him. I admire Victor in his attitude in order to survive, you even know where you go. It just like you are in the middle of two impossible things. Impossible to live in the ternimal, and impossible to go back home. His English was poor, its hard for him to communicate for the people around in The Terminal. He was given a voucher for his food but unfortunately lost it, in order to have food, he studied the push cart machine where he gets money.
Viktor is above all a problem for Dixon, functioning as a possible obstacle to his promotion. As such, he wants Viktor to leave the airport even if that means he would quickly be picked up by another law enforcement office. Viktor, however, won't break the law by leaving. The terminal, a crossroads, also becomes a cross for Viktor, a devout Catholic who is on a mission for his dead father to collect a final autograph by a famous jazz musician before returning home to Krakozhia.
The Terminal is a quietly amusing tale whose melodramatic elements are significantly moderated by a political subtext. With its sustained emphasis on the nature of borders and freedom.
