A documentary of great importance
22 April 2006 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I am very taken of the silent way Honkasalo has documented this topic. She has managed to form a very touching, dramatic yet aesthetic picture of the problems that children face in war. This is an issue way too little discussed and I hope that one day the tragedies of Chechnya would be in the media spotlight in the way the middle east. Sadly Russia's "democracy" is something that the west does not want to touch since we depend on e.g. natural resources that Putin kindly provides us. This documentary will shock, even if it really doesn't bring anything new that one wouldn't have known from before. But it doesn't gloat with the suffering and violence that the children have had to go through, but rather lets you feel and empathize for yourself - have your own feelings.
