Sad but moving
1 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think that this documentary is a really good one. I liked the B&W treatment and the semi-long periods of quite to look at the awful sense of the ruined city.

The documentary covers the stories of the people that choose to work and live in Pripyat. They take you through ruined buildings and even the power plant itself. The story tellers interview the guards that keep watch oner the "zone" as it is referred to, in an effort to keep people from removing items that were left behind in the evacuation.

Overall it was very well done. I would certainly recommend this movie to people that care and or don't know about the sad story of Pripyat.
