Masterfully neutral, insightful and sometimes emotional
22 October 2016 | by rocknroll-16959See all my reviews

I found the movie greatly educational, as I've never heard of the Hasidic pilgrimage to Uman, even I've visited Ukraine before. This is a greatly sensitive issue, as evident in the movie. However, the director manages the impossible - to represent both sides equally and base the assumptions on facts and multiple opposing opinions.

The film raises issues of religion, history and development v.s. ethnic integrity. It gets quite personal due to intertwining stories of particular people in the story, which add deeper insights and points of view. It gets hilarious and emotional time-to-time, thus still not making movie a comedy or a tearjerker.

Eventually, the viewer feels informed, frustrated and confused (in a positive way), as opposed to being angry towards local Ukrainians or the Hasidim. That, I believe, is an ultimate goal of a good documentary.
