Hardly Funny, But Enlightening
14 September 2007 | by williams-bdSee all my reviews

Nothing too funny about this one. A lot of it is rather tragic actually. It gives us a glimpse of the difficulties these former Soviet citizens are facing as their states continue to transition. Of all the transitions that must be made, electricity seems like a rather small one, but as the film shows it still has an enormous impact. I don't believe the film was corporate propaganda but it offers no criticism of how AES handled the situation. Likewise, the corruption it does depict is located in the Geogian Ministry.Beyond the whole electricity/post Soviet theme, there is some decent exposure to the Georgian people and landscape. Watch out for a few brutal images of a murdered man and an electrified man.
