Why don't you live in North Korea if you think the place is so great Danila?
11 February 2007 | by (holland) – See all my reviews

I've seen this shocking documentary and it was even more shocking for me to see the review of Danila. How much evidence do you want to see that North Korea has a really bad regime? I've written a scientific paper in Dutch about the situation in North Korea and of course I've read a lot of resources about this subject. They all conclude one thing: North Korean regime is really cruel to it's non-elite citizens. Saying that North Korea isn't really that bad, is like suggesting there is a worldwide com-plot of countries, scientist, NGO'S etc against North Korea. Well, why does the world want that? The documentary is really good and a real eye-opener. Yes of course other countries also have their problems, but we know these problems and started several projects to vanish them. In North Korea the future seems really depressing, because the country is in complete isolation.

Well Danila, I don't know if you are a naive communist, a indoctrinated (elite) citizen of North Korea or just the village idiot. If you think this movie is pure propaganda, why don't you move to North Korea (or just stay there)?
