Storyline

A small town and its hopeful citizens are about to embark on a bright new journey. Massive rusty cranes, foreign investors, and the joyful chants of cheerleaders carry the dream of a great nuclear future. Disturbed only by gigantic stinging mosquitoes, the townsfolk celebrate the atomic hurray by engraving the nuclear power plant logo on buildings and soup bowls. Amidst the apparent atomic prosperity, lies a past that no one wants to remember. An island holding terrifying secrets. Stories of shocking and horrible crimes loom on the city just like the dark clouds of mosquitoes descending on its citizens. A world instantly transformed by ideologies, regimes and dreams of economic prosperity. The tales of characters whose lives intersect in a sinister past, nuclear future and the stinging mosquitoes flying through time, sealing their fate together. From the team behind the IDFA Silver Wolf award-winner "Georgi and the Butterflies". Written by Agitprop

Great movie!
13 December 2010 | by josip-nalisSee all my reviews

This documentary is amazing and brilliant, and of course, because of that, many persons can't understand it and don't agree. However, replying to Canadian guy, who said dozes of time how he didn't understand nothing of it (I wonder why?) and that this movie 'is like watching Borat, but without Borat'... This movie were not made for plain Westerns, or to be some cheap product for amusing everyone, as Borat is. Or to be kind of funny and provocative, so millions can have a little fun... This move is an excellent true story which aim is to express atmosphere and realism which is present in Belane 100%. Belane, which is town in Bulgaria, a sovereign and solid state in European Union! What is shocking there is real thing, not fiction or pumping up. After watching, one first meditate for some time, and after is spreading recommendation for watching. Camera, music, composition of movie... Indeed stunning job! Congratulate! For everyone who agree I recommend to watch 'The Shutka Book of Record'. Josip from Zagreb
