I saw the movie by accident and was deeply impressed how well Michale Boganim managed to capture humanity and the tragic personal events in this movie, without even showing the events happening directly at the Chernobyl plant.
What touched me most was the connection to their hometown of some of the characters. The discord between leaving a heavily polluted placed and staying on the grounds that were their home for many years.
The interlink of the stories of the characters in the movie are very well done, too and are sometimes just seconds short, which rather reflects real life than some pathetic happy get- together of characters at the end of most Hollywood movies.
