Summary
1 September 2001 | by baigaSee all my reviews

Young filmmakers playing with the canons of the genre - historical melodrama. 1940 - the year of terror in Europe when the independent Latvian nation is also occupied. Love between a Prussian girl and a Latvian radio journalist and its confrontation with the atrocities of World War II politics. A dangerous game leaving an impact on nations and their leaders, the people and their lives. A game where no one ever wins.
