Storyline

Donetsk is the coal-mining area of Ukraine. Here most people work for low wages in the run down mines, while others make a lot of money. No matter which side of the social divide you are on, coming from Donetsk you will almost certainly be an opponent of the Orange Revolution and a fan of the local football team, Shakhtar Donetsk. Billionaire Akhmetov invests heavily in the club, which is becoming a major European force during the season followed by the film.

good truthful story on life and politics in Eastern Ukraine of 2000s
4 December 2011 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

Good movie on the life of ordinary people in Eastern Ukraine today as well as on the life of local elite producing for people new myths and dreams. It is impressive to see these people - at work and at home. They all are living in the same big city but their life is extremely different - that is dangerous for society, but it seems that representatives of local elite do not understand it at all. They simply enjoy their replete life with every day corruption and without any thinking on the future. That is story not only about Ukraine, but about the most parts of former Soviet Union. And it is terrible to think about the real end of this story in 10 or 15 years...
