English Summary:

Land of Plenty is a 2004 drama film directed by Wim Wenders starring Michelle Williams and John Diehl.[1]

The title of the film comes from the song "The Land of Plenty" from the album Ten New Songs, written by Leonard Cohen and Sharon Robinson, which was used in the movie. The film was Gloria Stuart's last screen appearance before her death in 2010.

The movie presents a view of post-9/11 United States as seen through the eyes of Lana (Williams), an American girl who has lived in Africa and the Middle East for years with her missionary parents. She is returning from a long trip to the West Bank. In Los Angeles, she works at a homeless mission and looks up her only living relative in the US, her late mother's brother, Paul (Diehl). He is a paranoid Vietnam veteran who drives around filming and spying on Arabs and people with Arab features. Lana, in contrast, leans toward anti-war convictions and has been changed by her experiences abroad, so feels outside American culture.

Having first-hand knowledge of the Middle East and Africa, she sees similarities between the slums of Los Angeles and those of the Third World. After she and Paul see the murder of a young Pakistani outside the mission, they take his body to his family. Their road trip offers Paul a different view of Muslim home life. Over the course of the film, Paul and Lana learn more about each other.

 

Hungarian Summary:

A Vietamot megjárt veterán, Paul, aki kopott furgonjában, ketyeréi védelméből figyeli a "Los Angeles külsőben" vegetáló embereket, attól tart, hogy szeretett hazája kisvártatva teroristák támadásának esik áldozatul. Kényszerképzetét nem az összeesküvés-sorozatok inspirálják, zsigereiből és saját keserű tapasztalataiból tudja, hogy attól a kormánytól nem sok jóra számíthat, amelyik lelkiismeret-furdalás nélkül tereli fiait az aknamezőkre. A film másik főhőse, Lana, Paul unokahúga, aki Izraelből hazaérkezve egyetlen megmaradt rokonát keresi az államokban. L. A. egyik külvárosi missziójában vállal munkát, kap ételt és szállást. Itt esik merénylet áldozatául egy arab nincstelen, amire Paul is felkapja a fejét. Kuzinjával megpróbálja felgombolyítani a szálakat, de szálak persze nincsenek, csupán ittas-narkós tinédzserek.
