The game Papers, please was the discovery of 2013, at least when it comes to independent titles, and its interesting, cold-war climate from behind the eastern part of the Iron Curtain has now been transferred to another medium. A group of filmmakers, in cooperation with the creator of the game, Lucas Pop, created a short film showing the hard life of a border guard in a fictional Arstotzka. Nikita and Liliya Ordynskiy worked on the film. The main character is an employee of one of the fictitious, totalitarian countries of the Eastern Bloc. His task is to check documents of people trying to cross the border and decide who will be able to receive this honor. His work is made difficult not only by paperwork, but also by his own conscience.
Excellent writing, set design, and art direction, managed to capture the style of Papers, Please while still being realistic, the acting was great, and I thought the lack of music in the more emotional/tense scenes worked really well and felt very human and captivating. I really liked the music although it doesn't fit that well with the setting it goes for, editing was good but could've been better towards the end, and it used quite a bit of CGI, which put me off but at the same time it still kind of works and is forgivable for the most part.
