Storyline

Sometime in 1986, or maybe 1987, in the dead of night, a man parks his motorcycle next to an empty amusement park. He hides from security guards as he finds his way to a block of flats and enters one. A guard smashes a window and yells at him to leave. He does, but he's carrying something from the flat. He is Nikolai, married to Anya, the father of Lena, who is a thin, ethereal waif. In what we later learn is a flashback, we see them packing to leave, hurried by authorities, who tell them to leave everything behind. What's going on, why can they bring nothing? And why would Nikolai return home, sometime later, to steal a door? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A real feature short shot on the real location - envious...
13 July 2012 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

I do understand the above, the somewhat not sufficiently motivated nature of it, if I took it right. A little too scarce that the single motive is that door. Only one core around which it all is threaded.

However I think it is a remarkable achievement to have been able to film at the very location (and all with extras, vehicles, etc), even if its sadly starting to be a cliché about Pripyat. Still I think it will never stop being a thrilling issue and location. I myself actually still have a desire to once be able to go there for some reason. Very convincing and decent production, acting, photography.

The strange thing is that there is another "The Door", of 2009, with Mads Mikkelsen, what oddly enough tells about "an artist who loses control of his life after his young daughter's death."
