Default speeding up access..

I have a problem with ms access.
the database(.mdb file) is placed in a remote server in say another country. There are two ways to use it.
First - open the database directly from the remote location(via network path) , opening it and using its forms to manipulate the data in it.

Second - have an interface (in say VB), and use the database at backend.
Point is that the database is placed across continents so accessing it takes time.

Now my question is which of the above two ways is better in order to access the database in a more faster way and why ?

Point is that this is NOT a way to use Access. Access is NOT suited to a WAN. See here for more about that:

You should use Citrix or Terminal Services for this instead.
