Immigrants, also known as L.A. Dolce Vita or Immigrants: L.A. Dolce Vita (Hungarian title: Immigrants - Jóska menni Amerika) is a Hungarian-American animated film directed by Gábor Csupó. The Hungarian release date was October 30, 2008. It is the fifth feature-length film from studio Klasky-Csupo, and is Csupó's first feature-length animated film he directed, and his second in general, following the live-action Bridge to Terabithia for Walt Disney Pictures.

The characters and storyline in this motion picture was to have been the basis for a new animated series for Spike TV, which was to have debuted in August 2004;[1] however, despite scheduling a two-hour marathon of the series on its premiere and an order of six episodes, the series never aired. It was later compiled into a film and released in October 2008 in Hungary.

For home video, the film was released on Region 1 DVD in 2009 by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment.


Joska, a Hungarian immigrant in Los Angeles, is sharing an apartment with the Russian Vladislav. In their search for the "American Dream" they get into all kinds of troubles, wild adventures and comical situations. What saves them is their big hearts and loyalty to each other in this unlikely friendship in a foreign country.


  • Jóska is a Hungarian immigrant, born in Budapest.
  • Vladislav is a Russian immigrant who has a teenager daughter, Anya.
