Doesn't really work
25 February 2016 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

The Chernobyl disaster, during and 10 years after the event, told as a human-drama movie.

The "during" part is interesting though not entirely compelling - you don't see any of the attempts to combat the disaster and hardly see the reactor. Interesting because you see the effect on the general population.

The "10 years after" part is dull. The characters are uninteresting and the plot goes nowhere.

Overall, doesn't really work - it would have been better if this was a straightforward documentary, rather than an attempted drama.
