Unpretentious and brilliant
8 March 2018 | by WildBullWriterSee all my reviews

This short film, in an unpretentious way, reveals so very much about the lives of the people it portrays... both the life of the trader and the lives of the impoverished farmers/peasants who trade potatoes for the things they need and want. Lovely cinematography. Some of the lingering shots are just brilliant for the raw truth they reveal about the lifestyles and daily routines of the people. This is a flim one will watch more than once.
