Storyline

A small town and its hopeful citizens are about to embark on a bright new journey. Massive rusty cranes, foreign investors, and the joyful chants of cheerleaders carry the dream of a great nuclear future. Disturbed only by gigantic stinging mosquitoes, the townsfolk celebrate the atomic hurray by engraving the nuclear power plant logo on buildings and soup bowls. Amidst the apparent atomic prosperity, lies a past that no one wants to remember. An island holding terrifying secrets. Stories of shocking and horrible crimes loom on the city just like the dark clouds of mosquitoes descending on its citizens. A world instantly transformed by ideologies, regimes and dreams of economic prosperity. The tales of characters whose lives intersect in a sinister past, nuclear future and the stinging mosquitoes flying through time, sealing their fate together. From the team behind the IDFA Silver Wolf award-winner "Georgi and the Butterflies". Written by Agitprop

Magnificent study of the absurdities of us humans
26 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Couldn't disagree more with Nic from Canada. This film is a consummate study of humanity - like a Peter Greenaway mock-doc, only, in this case it's all true folks, and therefore acutely significant. The great achievement of the film is the skill with which Paounov switches from a procession of entertaining absurdities into the real, terrifying underlying story of Belene before you as a viewer even realise what's happening to you. The result is that you're left puzzled about all sorts of things, but especially how we humans, we innocents, can get ourselves tied up in such a mess of history. Definitely worth two hours of your life (and that's including the commercials).
