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
I normally don't write reviews. But this movie is so terrible, that I feel I owe to fellow IMDb patrons to stay away. I can understand an ideological movie. I can understand an 'independent' movie. I can understand a movie that pretends to be a documentary but is in fact an absurd collection of stories. I can understand quirky characters. I can understand contrast, irony, non-linear/non-existent plots and utter desolation. What I can't understand is all of it put together in a meaningless, unedited, frustrating and painfully boring whole. It's like the director feels that because his subjects had to waste the entire time of their lives in some horrible pathetic place, that's its OK to waste two hours of yours. Put another way: It's like watching Borat, but without Borat.
