Very entertaining,stunningly well done, documentary of discovery. Subtle dark humor.
3 April 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

Let me start off by stating that if you are European left that felt, and still feels the need to rationalize, apologize for, or ignore, the deep and everyday evils of communism, you are going to dislike this film. If you are in denial, you're going to get "triggered."

If you are anyone else, I highly recommend this film. So many elements are astoundingly well done. The weaving in of old communist TV and film is perfect. The dialogue selection is amazing, even in the dry matter of fact lay the seeds of discovery. Q: "Among our friends, nobody came from a family of the victims? Families repressed by the regime?" A: "More or less the opposite."

Ms. Panayotova, the filmmaker and on screen guide to her family's history, is a joy to watch.
