Grateful to Jan Křipač and Filmovy Prehled for the article and kind words.

Lyubynetska is once again creating a formally loose yet dense narrative, which allows viewers to sense the latent tension between the two antagonist nations and the simultaneous growing affection between the main protagonists from hints, ellipsis and fragmentary dialogues. Another typical trait of her work is that fiction is interwoven with the everyday reality of today’s Kiev captured documentary-style.
